There are few things that link generations together; and that’s the beauty of observing and defining generations. Some of the greatest innovations throughout the course of humanity happen because of generational differences. From a generation who said we will no longer judge a man or a woman by the color of their skin, but the character of their heart; to a generation determined to tear down a wall dividing Germany during the Cold War. Each generation longs to make their mark upon history. Yet, as each generation comes of age – so to speak, there are struggles we all share – no matter how different we all seem.
One of these similarities are aging parents. Every single generation reaches a point where taking care of mom and dad become a top priority. I witnessed the long hours and sacrifice required for this task when my mom, while working a full-time job and taking care of our family at home, also worked countless hours to help her mom and dad through the struggles of aging. A lot of us do not think about a plan to take care of mom and dad when they retire. How will we ensure their physical health, mental health, and even spiritual health? On this episode, we’re sitting down with the Executive Director of Fox Run Retirement Community Mike McCormick, and having a conversation about how we start that conversation with our parents now, so we can create an effective plan when that times comes. It’s not an easy topic, but it is an important one.
