what things would you have done differently regarding caregiving?
If I had a time machine, I would have promoted the fantastic retirement village big time long before my parents became house bound. Maybe they would have been interested in moving. They would have had more freedom, and I would have had more freedom. Now my parents have aged to a point where they don't have the energy to even think of downsizing and moving :(
If I had a time machine I would have gotten my parents into seeing an Elder Law Attorney years ago, my parents desperately need a new Will and a Trust. The current Will is a landmine because the way it is written. Dad keeps dragging his feet :(
If I had a time machine I wouldn't have kept saying *yes* to driving my parents everywhere they wanted, thus using up vacation days, sick days, and days without pay. I had enabled them to depend on me instead of finding other means of transportation :(
