Visit Your Elderly Relatives Over the Holidays
With the holiday season upon us, now is an excellent time to talk to our
family members and make sure that they are doing well. This is especially
true of our elderly relatives who all too often feel isolated, alone and
like no one cares.
The simple truth is that generally Americans do not do a good enough job
looking after their elderly relatives. Our elderly do not have the
emotional support that they need. They also do not often have the
financial support that they need either. We tend to gloss over these
uncomfortable truths in our society, but we cannot deny them.
Unfortunately, this leaves elderly people susceptible to others who seek
to take advantage of them.
Use the holidays as a good excuse to visit your elderly relatives. A
short visit might be all that you need to identify a problem that your
relatives have. You might be able to fix any problems yourself. If you
can not, then visit with an elder law attorney to see what can be done.
