Some call midlife the “sandwich season” because people in this age group are parenting young adult children while caring for aging parents.
Today we are discussing how to care well for our parents as they age, and the opportunity we have to become more Christ-like in the process.
Jane Daly, author of The Caregiving Season, is joining us to talk about her own experience caring for both of her parents. We explore the difference between “parenting” and “coaching” our parents.
We also discuss how to take away car keys, what happens if their mind fails before their body, what information we need to have on file in case of a death or injury, and how to divide up caregiving duties between siblings.
If you are nearing a caregiving season, or are in one right now, this episode will be a source of encouragement, help, and inspiration.
