You know it’s important to plan for your own future and help your kids build good financial habits. What about older loved ones? Many people find it hard to talk about financial and investment matters with older parents or relatives. As long as they’re healthy and independent, it’s easy to assume they are also set financially — but if they aren’t, you could find yourself in the position of essentially becoming their retirement and long-term care plan.

Estate planning and elder care attorney Christine Brown talks about how you can start those tough conversations with your loved ones and, if necessary, begin the financial planning process.
