Parenting Upward Guide

It is our responsibility to ensure our parents get the support they deserve, and we want to be the catalyst in this ever growing community to make sure we raise the bar when it comes to loving our parents.

1-800-MEDIGAP is known as the leading toll free number for Medicare supplement insurance information. Their studies report that close to one-third of their callers are care givers calling to get information about Medigap plans, most of them adult children caring for an aging parent.

Jeff Cline, founder of 1-800-MEDIGAP states, "Many of the calls received at 1-800-MEDIGAP are customers who are looking for answers way beyond medicare supplemental insurance, and now with our relationship with ParentingUpward.org we have a helpful resource to give them."

What eldercare will consist of for each family varies, and the pressing question is, "Is parenting upward something the children of the baby boomer generation ready to take on?" With the help of the Parenting Upward organization the answer is a resounding yes! A successful caregiving relationship will require much time, patience, and energy from caregivers, but it doesn’t have to be a painful endeavor. However, it does require proper preparation and a great support system to be successful in caring for a love one. ParentingUpward.org provides these valuable resources and more.

The ParentingUpward Guide includes topics like:
-Money Management
-Funding Healthcare
-Medicare and Medigap Coverage

On the newly revised site there are bi-weekly post about topics that matter to both aging adults and their caregivers. Seniors may visit the site for tips on helping themselves with daily challenges or children of senior parents can share these tips and tools with their parents to help the both work better as a team. There is also a downloadable version of the most recent parenting guide.

The website also provides topical information regarding many of the tough questions like:
-Is it time to take away the keys.
-Your house or mine? Where to care for an aging parent
-Dementia or Depression

"We provided the amazing people at Parenting Upward our top 10 non-insurance related questions, from our thousands of calls, and they delivered a guide that is both helpful and engaging to our audience. We believe in it so much, that we will be sending it to every caregiver who calls our hotline," Scott Seward, 1-800-MEDIGAP.

The staff at Parenting Upward understands the importance of eldercare and how difficult the process can be without the proper guidance and support. With aide from this great resource, both aging parents and caregivers can make life serving loved ones an easy transition.
