Do you envision your kids taking care of you?
I am a planner by nature which means I always look to the future. I want to live close to my mom so that when she gets older I can take care of her and keep an eye on her. We've talked on and off about co-buying a duplex together. I am very much for this idea so that she can maintain her privacy as she ages but will be very close if I need to get to her quickly.
This makes me think about my own future of course. I know it's selfish to think this way, but I really hope my kids take an interest in helping me as I age. I don't want to impose on them, of course. But I have a weird fear that I will end up alone in a nursing home.
I probably shouldn't think about these things at my age, lol. But I do.
Do you ever think about who will be by your side as you age?
