In the middle of a crisis, there are several important conversations to have with your parents and loved ones over 60 sooner rather than later. A colleague of mine in the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys just had an article published on this topic, titled the Five Conversations to Have with Parents and Elders During the Pandemic. I thought it might be a helpful resource for you and your loved ones. You can find it here.
There is also a comprehensive guide linked in the article. The guide walks you through not only the important conversations but also how to start these conversations, numerous ideas and links to activities specifically geared to loved ones over 60, and a specific list of questions to ask your parents and elders to come closer together through this pandemic.
If you have loved ones who are at a loss for how to support their families, this might be a helpful starting place. It touches on the importance of having your affairs in order, in addition to topics that will help you deepen relationships in the midst of the storm.
