The questions can seem endless: What medications are you on? Do you have allergies? Is there a living will? Who has power of attorney? Any time your mom or dad winds up in the emergency room, doctor's office or hospital, there's much those professionals need to know about your parents. So do you, especially if your parents can't speak for themselves. Lack of information can certainly be trouble for you when the time comes to assist your aging loved ones.

That's why family caregivers like you should be ready to be a supporter of your parents, helping them when it's time to provide those important details. The following resources could be a life-saver.
