What We offer? A systematic approach to shift the parent/child relationship allowing for the family to co-create a plan, both can follow as parents’ transition into their later years and their abilities change.
Who is it for? Adults whose parents are without a plan, designed to achieve their desires for their later years.
What does it do? Gives the parent a chance and a way to live out their years on their terms and relieves the adult children from the stress of unknowns, potential financial hardships, and regrets.
Why should this matter to the families we serve? Absent an individually designed plan to follow, the default by families is do nothing and hope for the best. The reality is your parent’s changing abilities progress, leading to one crisis after another causing loss of independence and few options for their future.
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 later 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 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 transition into their later years, then they don’t have a well thought out plan to guide them leading to a clear path for the months and years ahead.
Rhonda Caudell, The Aging Parent Expert, understands. She has been there before with three parents. She has professionally and personally felt the frustrations, seen the challenges of aging, and how past family relationships can prevent a unified approach to finding the best path for the parent.
She knows the steps you can take to identify the clear path and to co-create a plan for you and your parent to follow along the way.
The plan becomes your navigation system to lighten the path through all unknowns ahead revealing the best future for all concerned.
Considering the cycle of life: childhood, adulthood, middle age, seniorhood, mortality, the afterlife and so on generation after generation…What if your life was a story that remained after you’re gone and could be repeated by the next generation? What would your story be?
The “life-story” of families is what Endless Legacy was founded on and the reason it was inspired and created… to show you how to intentionally and purposefully create a family that cares for the generation above and behind. This cycle of transitioning into the aging process becomes a family story worth repeating and passing on and on.
Our first and most important relationship in life is with our parents, whether it was good or not so good. As we grow up and develop other relationships and have families of our own, our parents are still a part of our life, and our story of what shapes us.
As your parent approaches transitioning into their later years, do you feel responsible to help them in some way? Are you worried about what their future will be like? If your answer is “YES” then it is a great time to be here.

The best place to start is when…
Adults shift their parent/child relationship by:
- understanding what their parent is going through,
- learning how to communicate in a way that establishes trust,
- then partner to co-create a future plan that takes care of all those involved.
Adults in this life stage who work with Rhonda Caudell, The Aging Parent Expert, gain:
Peace of mind and confidence in knowing they are doing the best for their parents
Their time and energy to focus on their life, kids, and career
A way of knowing how to co-create a plan to guide the entire family now and later
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?
- education, years experience as a nurse geriatric care manager,
- lifelong love for seniors,
- parents transitioning to their later years,
- my innate giftedness to recognize, communicate, and solve problems,
- my passion to enable adults to co-create a clear path and plan their own kids will repeat for them one day,
inspired me to create Endless Legacy. A place where adults can find the teaching and support needed to help their parents transition well and leave a family legacy aspired by generations to come. A Legacy that is truly Endless!
