After reaching your mid and late twenties, and when your parents start getting their pains, aches and the regular visits to the hospital, you understand that what may have been there your whole life may not be there forever. Usually this triggers the thoughts about the future, how you plan for it so that unwanted surprises do not happen and how to keep your parents happy for the years they have left. Usually people wait for their parents to retire on their own for making plans. But this should not be the case because then it will be too late for planning properly and it will also be a lot more expensive.
Getting the financial foothold
When you hit your mid-twenties and late twenties, it also happens to be the time in life where you start to get some semblance of stability. You start earning your paycheck, you try to find to spend your life with and you start appreciating the friends and family who stayed with you the whole time. And this is also the age where you start planning for financial stability and you open up savings accounts for the vehicle, house and the wedding (all of which are ridiculously expensive). So when you add the costs for a having your parents located to retirement villages NZ and such, then the burden gets to your wallet and plans. So this is why you should probably have the plan of living close to your parents and just have the services of a nurse or an elderly care professional which is less costly.
Talk to your parents
Do not be all hush hush about planning the future of your parents or visit to every popular retirement destination. Give the courtesy they gave you when they planned your future and funded your whole life. Talk to them, ask for their opinions, ask about how they handled their own parents, insurance plans and other financial words of wisdom that allowed them to get through their life. If you are going to a meet financial advisor or a lawyer, take your parents along with you so that they can understand any changes to laws and other information they themselves might want to know. Or ask the professional expert to come to your house if our parents have difficulty travelling. You can discuss about rest homes, insurance plans, and other legalities with a professional who would know the details.
Keep your parents in the loop of your future plans and how you are going to care for them. They might have already made their plans for buying a house in Hawaii and enjoying beach life for all you know.
