Care Givers Dying Before Care Receivers

I recently saw a statistic which did not surprise me: in cases in which elderly couples are trying to care for each other instead of seeking help, in 60% of the cases, the primary care giver dies before the primary care receiver. With the healthier of the two dying first, extended family face an unexpected and serious crisis with how to help the survivor.


As families grapple with how to care for aging parents, this statistic should be kept in mind. Trying to be a hero may not be smart.
