ABC World News Piece on Helping Aging Relatives

Tonight I stumbled on an ABC World News piece called: “Families on the Brink: Roundtable Discussion on How to Help Aging Relatives.” Apparently, it is the beginning of a series about some of the challenges of aging.  Although the broadcast segment was short, a longer article appeared online (as did some poignant comments from viewers, reflecting the exhaustion and anxiety that many family caregivers experience.) The most important suggestion that I saw was online: ask those essential questions of your aging loved ones and listen carefully to the answers. It may be difficult and it may be time-consuming, but it is important and valuable.
