The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Founder, Victoria L Collier, Writes About The Issues Associated With Caring For Elderly Parents In This New Age
Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier reveals that while baby boomers are looking and feeling younger, their parents are not and both generations are facing issues unique to the times.
DECATUR, GA, February 25, 2019: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “New Age-Old Challenges,” in which Ms. Collier reveals that while Baby Boomers may be looking and feeling younger than previous generations, they are still faced with challenging care giving issues.
Collier starts with, “You’re only as old as you feel.” “Age is just a number.” “60 is the new 40.” We’ve heard all the clichés about aging.” She continues adding, “The Baby Boomer generation is the one that gave rise to and credence to the sayings. In fact, according to an article I read, a recent study conducted by researchers at Yale and the University of Southern California concluded that Americans are aging more slowly today than they were two decades ago.”
As Collier states, “The reasons they offer to be partly responsible includes a decline in smoking, obesity and medication use among this age group. While preserving their own health, for Baby Boomers caring for aging parents, it’s often a different story entirely.”
“The parents of the Baby Boomers generation grew up in simpler times,” writes Collier. She further elaborates, “They lived through a world war and worked hard. However they were behind the times in thinking about the effects of diet, smoking and medications on the aging process. They were also pretty advanced in years before the digital age took hold and most people in their 80’s find themselves intimidated by technology.” She adds, “In fact, Baby Boomers were not weaned in the digital age either and many manage to barely keep up with the changes that happen at lightning speed.”
