You asked your attorney, “How do families cope with all they have to know about taking care of an aging parent?

2. She asked questions about important aspects of your life and the life of an aging loved one. How has quality of life diminished? What worries you the most? What happens when you talk about your concerns? What motivates your loved-one? Who has Power of Attorney? What is the medical history? What is the financial picture? etc.
4. Gathered Information and Created an Emergency File of Life. She put all the pieces of information together such as Doctors, Medications, Medical History, Do Not Resituate (DNR) order, Family contacts, Legal contacts and other documents and told you that she would be there for you and your loved-one 24/7 when they go to the Dr. or if they go to the hospital unexpectedly. She was there when you went on vacation so you could enjoy a break.
5. She Became the Neutral Party which could help you and your loved-one meet common goals. And most importantly, she helped you be the Daughter instead of a harried, short-tempered caregiver.
