As I get older, I know my dad also gets older, and from time to time, I find myself worrying about him. He lives about 800 miles from me, and we talk several times a week. His body has been through a lot and he’s currently considered fully disabled by the state.
I know when he first started trying to get disability he would call me and I would try my best to explain different things he was needing to do to see about getting on some sort of supplemental insurance plan to help with his medical needs.
Dad remembered seeing something on the T.V about AARP and wanted me to look into seeing what he would have to do to sign up for it. I was somewhat familiar with this program, but I needed to do more research for myself. I wouldn’t want dad signing up for something that would do more harm to him then help him.
After looking into it more, I contacted my sister, since she is in the same area as dad. She let me know that she would make sure dad got over to the AARP office to sign up
One thing I dislike about being in another state is I cannot be there more for my dad, I know it is only a matter of time. His health is not the best, they have him on so many different medicines, and my sister and I have already started to talk about getting some sort of Burial Insurance for seniors.
