How are you guys/gals planning for care for your parents while living abroad? How much do you set aside for future medical expenses and such? Does anyone else lose sleep over this?

Sure. I’m not losing sleep over it yet. But it is one of the big future problem for me. I save in general+ I send money home (even though my parents are very well off financially). Hoping that money will also come in handy later on!

But overall, there seems to be no one solution

My mom is 80 and lives at home with a house help. Dad passed away some years ago. They were both central government employees with good medical coverage post retirement. I don’t know what else I can do from here.

I have hired a full time maid and a driver for them. They also live fairly close to a clinic and have health insurance

Hello there! I currently work in billing at a medical office. I got my Bachelors in Psychology a few years ago but I couldn’t find a position that seemed like a good option for me that was well paying and fulfilling. I tried working as a tech at an Applied Behavior Analysis clinic but it wasn’t a good fit. I’m hesitant to try case management or social work because I worry I won’t like it but I want to use my degree in Psychology. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
