By a certain age, you get used to people asking about your timeline. They want to know about your career the family you plan on raising. But how often does your role as your parents’ caretaker become the topic of conversation?
When you’ve gone off to college, relocated for your dream job, or built a base away from your parents, at what point do you start planning your return? I have a number of friends who are actively including their parents in their life planning. For some, there’s the desire to raise kids with grandparents. For others, there’s a need be around when the parents health begins to fail. And in some cases it’s just about feeling more like a family and building a sense of community.
When you plan for your future, are you actively considering your parents? Are you more concerned with being around them or providing for them financially?
