Parenting Aging Parents

We have all heard the phrase “sandwich generation”. You might be in it with your own family. The big question is how do we balance our own life, creating a family, raising our kids while also making sure that we can take care of our parents when they need us.

In this Chalk Talk, we will be talking about how to balance taking care of your young children, having a thriving career or business, and also addressing your aging parents.

Over the past five years, Mike and Kim Barnes found themselves navigating problems they never saw coming from their parents: Alzheimer’s, pacemakers, COVID pneumonia, and the tough decision to move parents into retirement communities. They’ve learned to balance the many facets of parenting aging parents, including medical, financial, and everyday-life decisions, emotional rollercoasters, protecting their parents from scams, and more, all while parenting their college-age kids, and building their careers.

Whether you are here now and will be in the future there is a lot to be learned from this conversation, so please join us and let’s walk this path together.

Some of the topics we’ll discuss:

  • Look At Your Family Dynamic
  • How Do You Balance This?
  • Have A Financial Conversation
  • Be On Our Parent’s Accounts
  • Have A Team Approach
  • Power Of Attorney
  • List Of Passwords
