"FIVE STEPS TO A CAREGIVING PLAN FOR YOUR FAMILY: This guide is designed to help you and other family members discuss and create a caregiving plan for yourself or an aging parent, other relative, or close friend or neighbor.

If you have not yet begun to discuss a caregiving plan with your loved ones and other members of your family, it is never too late. It doesn’t matter who starts the conversation. What really matters is that every American family has the opportunity to talk about and create a caregiving plan for their aging loved ones based on the needs and wishes of those who will be receiving the care."
