I think many of us are here because our parents DIDN'T plan very well, so I wonder how many of you have thought carefully about what you want in your older years / end of life? I just shared this link on a few threads, but wanted to post about it specifically because it is thought provoking to say the least:
I have conflicting feelings about some of what the author discusses, but I also have serious heartburn about the emotional and financial burdens that the "silver tsunami" poses for us and our kids, who will also be challenged to deal with aging infrastructure, climate change and serious income inequality.
How does the article land for folks? Has your elder care journey shifted your thinking and plans for what you want to experience in your own elder years? How many of you have taken the approach of this author and decided to allow only palliative care beyond a certain point?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts,
