Has anyone had to deal with aging parents? Just wondering. I am currently researching options (local services - I do not live in their area) for my parents who are 75/83, both doing very well but it is always good to have things planned. We (my brothers and I) are planning on having a talk with my parents over the holidays (Christmas) to see where my parents are in terms of planning for their elder years. Has anyone had to do this sort of thing? How best to approach it with them? My mother sometimes get angry if surprised so I am planning on letting her know in advance that this subject will come up.
