Who Will You Care for? Who Will Care for You?

As a follow-up to the post on March 23rd which paints a picture of all the caregiving that is ahead of all of us here is something that every one of us over 40 needs to be asking ourselves:

Who is going to be my caregiver? And whose caregiver am I going to be?

Factor in the possibility that the person you think will be your caregiver may need a caregiver first--So who is your second choice? And do they know that's your expectation? It's hard stuff to talk about with family and friends but this is the stuff that makes life really crazy when that call comes that says "Mom fell" or "You need surgery" or  "The test results show ...."

Later we'll talk about how to say No.
