Aging Brings About "What ifs"

August 23, 2019

Although the majority of those surveyed said they are comfortable discussing these important issues, the reality is they seldom do. The main reason mentioned: No one is starting the conversation.

So how and where do you start? Begin by thinking about the “what ifs.” Some questions to get you started include:

What if I had a stroke and could no longer live alone? Where would I want to live? My home with help? With my family? Assisted living?
What if I developed significant memory loss? Who would I want to pay my bills? Help me make financial or medical decisions?
What if my mother had a heart attack and needed help? What in-home or community-based services could help? What can I do?
Next you start the conversation.
