Father’s Day Quiz!

USA Today published some of the results of a survey conducted by Home Instead (an in-home health aid company) regarding families’ preparedness to care for an aging relative.  As you might suspect, either by evaluating your own preparedness or suspiciously eyeing the survey’s sponsor, the results were pretty grim for the elderly.

In USA Today’s article, it did offer one tip that you can do without much muss or fuss:  Find out what drugs a parent can go without and which ones must be taken on schedule.

For Father’s Day, ask the question, write down the answer, and stash it away in your wallet (and then ask again at Thanksgiving).  Proactive care is certainly a gift to an aging father.
