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.”
The Problem is this type of “Plan” never ends with the best outcomes for the parent and their adult children.
What We offer?
Step-by-step instructions, guidance, and support of how 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 their own well being. Or past conversations with your parent regarding the problems you’ve noticed were unproductive or ended badly.
What does it do?
Adults with parents, that lack wise decisions and actions and are waiting and hoping for the best, who work with us have less:
- frustrations and angst regarding their parent’s well being while aging,
- feelings of helplessness and inability to get their parent to make positive change,
- interruptions in their own work life, family life, and priorities,
- stress over how to deal with unknowns and parent’s decline in independence.
The Wait and Hope Plan often leads to one crises after another causing more loss of independence, financial resources, and ultimately their Hope.
The Thrive, Live Purposefully Plan, gives those adults a way to form a parent–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 adults discover how to banish the miscommunication between them and their parents with an easy formula that leads to action steps and keeps the conversation from going awry, causing recurring emotional upheaval.
Why should this matter to the families we serve?
A parent’s aging journey can be the catalyst for family transformation when adults make the right choices. The proactive adult moves
frustrated, hurt feelings, ill-equipped to deal with their aging parent’s new life stage of not being fully capable & not accepting the facts
an empathetic, courageous, empowered, loving, trust-worthy guide their parent will follow.

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?
