What do you do when you disagree?
One of the biggest problems most people run into when caring for their aging parents is not agreeing with their siblings.
Where the parents should live?
How much help do mom and dad need?
Who runs errands for the parents?
Who takes the parents to doctors appointments?
Who handles the money?
These are the types of questions that can put a thorn in family relationships.
