1. Maintain a strong marriage: give your parents a safe, secure place to be with you and learn about new things from young people. Because parents in strong families feel secure and loved, they have confidence to age in place at home or their child's home, try new things and keep active. And they can deal better with challenges and setbacks because they know they have family support.
2. Have the child's grandparents at home: If the grandparents are willing to volunteer to babysit your child, you have the least to worry about. This arrangement allows the kids to develop a bond with their grandparents and gives you a breather when both of you are busy at work. From the financial aspect, this is the most low-cost and low-risk arrangement for your child.
3. Love your parents with your time: Time is irreplaceable and invaluable. With working adult children and parents neglect being the most serious problem afflicting many households, it is very important to spend quality time with your parents every day. Switch off your mind from any other thoughts, and instead, focus on the time you give your parents. It has a huge impact on their lives and can help you achieve the equilibrium to care for your parents while you work.
