          Tips On How To Care For An Aging Parent Whether Near Or Far


          May 15, 2018

          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.
