Parents are the experts when it comes to showing love and support, from caring for a child’s skinned knee and cooking family dinners to teaching life lessons and lending a helping hand. Roles often reverse as parents age, and adult children may need to now lend a helping hand to their parent whose needs have changed. When helping an aging parent make decisions for independence, it’s good to know the options that exist for families of aging adults, from life plan communities that offer independent living through skilled care to at-home services for the adult who wants to continue living in the comforts of their current home. Across Louisiana, families are finding ways for aging parents to maintain healthy, productive lifestyles and also receive a helping hand when needed.
