Senior Smart: Finding ways to help aging loved ones

It’s well known that Maine’s has the nation’s oldest median age, at 44.7 years old. 

Peter Van Allen, Mainebiz editor

Maine got a tad younger with the influx of people during the pandemic, but we still have a large segment of the population that is making the transition to assisted living.

The generation that’s caring for seniors is typically working parents who may also have young children.

This publication from Mainebiz is here to help with the process of dealing with aging loved ones. 

In this issue, you’ll find stories about:

  • How to have tough conversations with a loved one about the next step
  • How to approach issues around dementia
  • How to help with self-care issues
  • How to help a loved one prepare financially for a move to assisted living.

These conversations are never easy, but there are resources out there to help.
