A recent survey shows that many “baby boomers” are not prepared to help their elderly parents. Betsy Head with Home Instead Senior Care Services says many adult children don’t know enough about their parents’ medical and financial situation to handle an emergency. Head says there’s lot of information children of aging parents should keep on hand in case they get an emergency all in the middle of the night. Home Instead has a packet of information available. Head says those conversations can be difficult for adult children and their parents, and she points to a website that can help get that dialogue started.
