“To parent your parent is undoubtedly challenging, both emotionally and logically. Parents are the people who raised you and it’s difficult to change those roles. It is a common occurrence for children to ignore what’s going on and avoid the confrontation. That’s where Parent Your Parents and its team of experts step in. We have the professional and personal expertise to help you determine which elder care options are best for your family. — H. Frances Reaves, Esq.
