Have you talked to your parents about their plans for the future? Most likely, they have eagerly shared their retirement goals, their vacation agenda and perhaps even their ideas for downsizing. However, do you know if they have made their final arrangements? Do they have a will? Do you know what their wishes are if they should become incapacitated?
If you can't answer these questions, it may be time for a frank discussion with your folks. On the other hand, according to a recent survey, your parents may believe they have already discussed this with you.
