Caring for Elderly Parents

Daughter with her elderly mother

When we were children our parents were our caregivers, but what happens when those roles reverse? We don’t like thinking about our parents becoming ill, losing their independence or not being able to care for themselves.

This Focus on the Family podcast offers support and practical tips about caring for parents as they move into their later years of life.

As difficult as it is to consider, one day they may need your help — just as we once needed theirs. This is what occurred to guest Lisa Anderson, who is the Director of young adult ministry for Focus on Family in the USA.  She shares her story of caring for her mother.

Focus on the Family provides relevant, practical support to help families thrive in every stage of life.  Listen to their daily radio show weekdays on Vision. Find your local times here.
