Having family discussions about finances for aging parents can be difficult. The adult children need to step up and be the leaders, even if parents are resistant to the conversation. Sometimes, the family dynamics are such that an outside professional is needed to mediate the discussion. Consider the use of a professional mediator if you are stuck, and trying on your own gets nowhere. The cost is worth it, as your financial responsibility to aging parents can, as the article points out, be a huge burden. We are a nurse-lawyer, psychologist team, providing these services to elders and their families. Mediators in your area with the appropriate background to be of help can be found by a search of local directories or the internet, or can be part of a community based, low-cost mediation center.
