How to Talk With an Aging Parent About Long-Term Care

Tuesday 09:55 GMT

Many people view the possibility of needing long-term care as a fate worse than death, and try to deny, resist, postpone or denigrate the idea.

It’s frustrating and even heartbreaking when these attitudes persist and block you from finding the care that a parent or loved one needs. Simply raising the topic can be hard enough, especially in a role-reversal, when a child needs to assume a caregiving role for a parent.

Why don’t we help graduates navigate office life?

Thursday 19:06 GMT

Of course, we’ve all been there at the start of our own careers … because we don’t do a very good job of teaching students and recent graduates how to navigate office life.

If you’ve spent much time working with recent graduates – people who have just finished university without much work experience – you’ve probably witnessed your share of odd office behaviour. For instance, the new grad who shows up dressed for a night of clubbing, or the entry level worker who doesn’t realise the CEO in a Fortune 500 company doesn’t want his opinion about their new brand strategy, or the new grad who takes all her calls on speakerphone without noticing the colleagues glaring in her direction.

These are the things that matter most in retirement

Thursday 10:51 GMT

When I was asked to contribute to an international survey on “What is most important for well-being in later life?” my first response was: Oh, I can easily come up with an answer to that question.

A few seconds after I said yes, I realized that I shouldn’t come up with what matters most to me for a good life in my third age (the healthy years after work, but before fragility and disease set in).

Tuesday 22:44 GMT

The six episodes of Back to Life, starring Daisy Haggard and which she wrote with Laura Solon, are darkly flashing gems and the crowning achievement of their already impressive careers.

She is all of a piece with the closely woven realism of every other part of Back to Life, which doesn’t have a false note in it. She is an optimist – not in a maddening or incredible way, but simply in the way that ordinary people can be; she can be knocked down and get up again, battered, bloodied and slightly more weary than before, and stagger on.
