Check out Newsweek.com’s “A Guide for Caregivers.” Author Joan Raymond offers tips on medical, financial, legal, and housing issues you can discuss with your aging relatives and points to additional helpful resources. Before you join the ranks of the approximately 20 million Americans taking care of their families and their aging parents – what we at AARP call the sandwich generation – it’s important to open a dialogue about these issues with your parents. You can also visit AARP’s caregiving page or pick up our book, Caring for Your Parents, at Borders for more information.
