If you are caring for your aging parents, you are not alone. Statistics show that over 40 million Americans are in a season of helping to care for their parents. Focus on the Family’s John Fuller and his wife are currently in that season and John joins Ken and Deb to talk about the blessings of a multigenerational home and what it looks like to honor our parents as they age. John says that the experience of having his mother-in-law in his home has enriched their family life and he offers advice on how adult children and parents can begin the important discussion of end-of-life care.
