As we approach midlife, a lot of us may find ourselves taking care of our aging parents, children or both. How do we not go broke taking care of other people in our lives? Even people who spend a lot of time on financial planning tend to overlook their own needs in the long term for assistance with finances (paying bills, organizing things, etc) and healthcare (rides to appointments, caregiving, etc). Why is that? Richard Eisenberg shares a little bit about his personal experience as a caregiver and shares some best practices to providing care while also protecting our financial future and planning for a happy retirement.
