Getting elderly parents who live independently, to plan for future care options.
My parents, who are divorced, still live independently. They both have made no plans for their future care when they cannot live indepenently anymore. They both know I am not an option as a caregiver to them. They refuse to discuss the issue and just live their lives as if they will live, the way they are, until they die. I tried to tell them if they don't make choices now, they will be forced to have decisions made for them in the future. They both say they will worry about it when and if the time comes. How selfish can they be? I don't want to have to make those choices for them! I am ready to just walk away and leave them to their own lives, living with their heads in the sand!
