An update on last summer’s interview with a New Yorker named Tim, whose dad is in the late stages of Parkinson’s disease and whose stoic mother refused outside help until recently. Tim talks about what’s changed with his parents since we last spoke with him, why his dad’s long-term care policy has helped despite its complications and how the family has benefitted from engaging an elder care expert. He also talks about how he deals with being “shaken to the core” after visits with his parents, and how personal growth and time spent in southeast Asia have influenced his approach to caring for them. See Episode 9 – Return of the Prodigal Son – for Part 1 of this lively and moving story.
