I am trying to make a list of questions I need to ask my parents before it's too late, like where are their checkbooks, their savings accounts, stock brokers, safe deposit box, an updated will, do they have a power of attorney, etc.
What are their final wishes, since the only clue I have is that they want to be buried out the mid-west... ok, we really need to narrow that down....
Do they want to be on life-support or any other medical request?
If they become unable to care for themselves at a later date, do they want to move to assistant living or have a *professional* caregiver come to the home? Notice, I am not an option on that question.
Just wondering if there is a website, or even on this website, a form with a list of all the important questions that a grown child needs to have *that talk* with their parent(s). Actually talking to my Dad isn't working as he gets too distracted, but I think he will pay attention to filling out a form and talking it over with Mom.
