The 40-70 Rule

 By the time you approach age 40 and a loved one is around 70, you should have had the "talk" about issues so many families want to avoid. Topics such as living and financial choices, health, driving, dating and end of life can be perplexing. The Home Instead Senior Care®network refers to this concept as the 40-70 Rule®, a program launched in 2008 to start important conversations early, before a crisis occurs. Please Click Here  to link to our 40-70 website.
