Are you caring for someone you love? How do you start the conversation about assisting your loved one as they age? WLRN's Sunshine Economy wants to hear your story.

We're all aging.

And while it's easy to dwell on the biology of the process, or the thought of it, there are far more needs to consider. Some of the most essential things — such as figuring out a housing situation, managing medical concerns, and dealing with legal matters — are not always top of mind, until they have to be.

Are you caring for someone you love? How do you start the conversation about assisting your loved one as they age? Have you had to help with caregiving of an aging loved one?

And it can be difficult to figure out those things for a partner a parent or a loved one.

Have you had this conversation or do you need to have one soon? If so, WLRN's Sunshine Economy wants to hear your story. The deadline to share is noon Saturday, Oct. 16.
