I would encourage all to start the conversation of downsizing housing and care instead of waiting until a crisis occurs.
This is hard to do within families as adult children with aging parents report that they “know” the desires of their parents, whereas in many cases their views don’t align with their parent’s wants and desires.
Whilst children want to do the right thing by their parents, a combination of emotions and denial make for strained relationships and regret, causing much anguish, distress and sometimes an impasse. So bring someone in, like the Downsizing Divas, who can bridge this gap.
Crisis-driven moves tend to result in stress and misery all round. Thinking ahead and introduce this topic as a part of a series of conversations is the key.
