Now that H and I are married, we get to deal with a whole bunch of stuff that one would describe as less than fun. She has to jump through all of the name changing hoops, we then can sit down and talk about options for a whole bunch of uncomfortable stuff, like life insurance and wills, and a whole bunch of stuff that’s less than exciting, like retirement plans.
One of the things we of course have to worry about is our extended family and how they will be cared for when they are unable to care for themselves. It’s a sad situation, but unfortunately one that everyone has to deal with as no one has family members that will be forever young. If you’re curious about it, here’s a good overview of 4 basic kinds of care providers. There are plenty of options out there, so make sure you do your research and talk with the person that may need care before they need it. No one wants to be left wondering if they made the right choice for a loved one.
If you’re curious, there’s good article on caring for aging parents on NPR. It’ll be uncomfortable to talk and think about, but it should be done.
Sorry for the short post today, im finally back home and I am beat.
