The 40-70 Rule®
Experts have said that by the time you’re approaching 40 and a loved one is around 70, you should have had the “talk” about issues so many families want to avoid. The Home Instead Senior Care network refers to that as the 40-70 Rule® , a program launched in 2008 to address the importance of starting difficult conversations early. Home Instead, Inc., now wants to take these conversations further and encourage individuals and families to document their wishes.
