Most People’s Parents Live their aging years with The Wait & Hope Plan
“We’ll wait and see what happens, when it happens, and hope for the best outcomes.”
What We offer?
Training to guide you, to help your parent thrive while aging by living fully in the later years with purpose, partnership, and a practical plan. We call this The Thrive, Live Purposefully Plan
Who is it for?
Caring-heart adults who are struggling with “What to do to help Mom or Dad?” Their aging parent has unresolved challenges, lacks wise decisions and follow through for the good of their future years, and past conversations with the parent were unproductive or ended badly.
What does it do?
Clients who buy from us have less frustrations, interruptions, and stress in their life due to parent’s lack of wise decisions and follow through. The Wait and Hope Plan often leads to one crises after another causing loss of independence, financial resources, and ultimately the Hope.
The Thrive, Live Purposefully Plan, gives clients partnership, a relationship with their parent involving close cooperation with each having specific and joint rights and responsibilities that leads to co-creation of the practical individualized plan for living the future aging years without regrets.
The clients also communicate with their parent in a different way with a formula to keep the conversation from going awry and causing recurring emotional upheaval.
Why should this matter to the families we serve?
Human nature is to react to problems as they occur, often resulting in undesirable and unexpected outcomes that can seldom be reversed. The Wait and Hope Plan causes parents and their adult children to react to problems and have very little to no control of the problem resolution or the results.
Better outcomes for people aging, are connected to pro-acting and planning for:
- anticipated and predictable problems,
- problems that are preventable and take appropriate actions,
- being prepared with plan B before it is needed.
Adults Have Parents Only for a Limited Time.
We are busy with our lives, raising kids, excelling in work life…
Then overnight it seems, our parents are transitioning into their aging years.
We worry and wonder…have they prepared for this next life stage and do they have ideas of what to expect, what it will cost them, or what will it cost me?
Perhaps they prepared when we were busy and didn’t notice and they forgot to tell us.
The fact is, if they haven’t told you about their plan of how they will navigate these challenging times as they age, then they don’t have a well thought out plan to guide them leading to a clear path for the months and years ahead.

Adults realized their kids are watching how they handle this transition of their parents. Absent a clear path to follow, their kids will simply repeat what they see…the concern and unknowns when parents are transitioning into the later years without a clear plan.. All adults desire to be a better example for their own kids. What kind of example are you modeling? Is it a model you would want your kids to follow when it’s time for you to transition in your later years?
