As parents age, it often falls to their child or children to take care of them, sometimes, bringing difficult choices. This task can become more of a challenge if they live miles apart. That’s why it’s important to start a conversation early so that parent and child can create a plan to make sure aging parents are being taken care of in a way that makes both feel comfortable.
Pfizer’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, joins Dr. Phil to offer tips on how to care for an aging parent. She shares warning signs that may indicate a parent needs some help, what living options are available and what families who live far apart should do to ensure the safety of an aging loved one.
