If you are caring for an aging parent, spouse, or other loved one, you are not alone. Statistics show that nearly 25 percent of all households in the United States are providing care for an elderly person. Although you may be willing to help, you may find the task comes with unexpected challenges. Matters you never thought about are now your responsibility—healthcare, housing, financial and legal matters, as well as day-to-day issues involving nutrition, medications, and personal safety. You may find yourself worried, overworked, and exhausted.
