What taking care of elderly parents really like

Good Morning Utah

Having to care for the elderly is a topic that will affect most adults. James Colozzo, the author of You Got To Do What You Got To Do, joined GMU to talk about his experiences caring for his parents.

“My parents’ generation struggled and lived paycheck to paycheck to provide for the family. They never considered or heard of long term care insurance and even if it was available there was not enough money left over to cover the monthly premium,” explained James. 

James decided to write this book after 20 years of caring for his parents. He says that the hardest part was that the work never started.  Also, most people think insurance covers everything and with his parents’ insurance that was not true.
