Everyone faces the issue of aging and dying at one time or another. When one reaches that age in life where the retirement and post-retirement cycles are coming into focus, it is time to take some serious action to prepare under Texas law for future eventualities. One of the recommended procedures is for the elderly parents to join their grown adult children in discussing how their later years will be handled, including charting out a framework for their long\-term care.
For the children, having a meeting with elderly parents may be virtually impossible to organize due to the state of withdrawal in which parents sometimes place themselves. The hesitancy to have a family meeting to discuss the future is not a rare thing. However, those who have taken the steps to get it done are generally in a superior position going forward.
