Whether your parents or in-laws are healthy or not, at some point they are going to need some form of medical care. Annual checkups are vital to continued health and wellness as well as an annual visit to the dentist for teeth cleaning or evaluation of any dentures or prostheses. An ophthalmologist and audiologist might also be needed for vision or hearing deficits. As your parents age, they will statistically require more and more health care. Accessing care, finding transportation, and understanding the care may require assistance from you as well as other family members.
