Figuring out what care to give an elderly or dying parent is tough for any child.
Noted columnist and author Joe Klein tells his personal story in this week's TIME magazine cover story. In the piece, he describes the tough road he faced managing the care for his parents in the final months of their lives, and the solution he found that made this difficult process a little easier.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.Thank you for being so honest, reflective and writing an absolutely marvelous article. I have been a nurse in Healthcare for over 30 years. This ought to be required reading for every American. I believe that you have exposed the dirty secret- fee for service medicine- where the provider is rewarded financially for continuing to bring you back time and time again into the office. Bravo Joe Klein.
Thank you so much Joe Klein for sharing your most intimate moments in the care and passing of your dear parents. The fact that you found the strength to share the details with us, will help us better plan for our passing and alleviate the burden for our children.
Keep up the good work !
