A Guide to Caring for Aging Family Members

See Susan Diamond’s post:  Slowed-down Aging Parents–What I never realized.Pokey

Oh no! My husband’s and my parents are all gone–now this applies to ME! I especially identify with:

1) There’s a persistent worry about forgetting, so there’s added urgency–the feeling I must take care of a thing right away before it’s forgotten;

2) This causes me to double-check myself to make certain I did–or will do–it right; and

3) I don’t multi-task well because multi-tasking diverts concentration and can easily lead to forgetting.

There’s also the fact that I’m retired and don’t HAVE to rush about anymore.  So–I guess I am now the “Pokey Parent.” Scary huh?
