Caregiving is not something that most people plan for. Unfortunately, families are often thrown into the role as a result of a crisis but there is much families can do to proactively prepare to care. Talking with aging loved ones and helping them create a plan for how they want to live out their later stages of life, provides older adults with more control and freedom.
