The 40-70 Rule: Solving Communication Issues Within Families

Many experts agree: by the time someone is approaching age 40 and their loved one is around 70, they should have had “the talk” about issues so many families want to avoid. Topics such as living and financial choices, health, driving, dating and the end of life can be perplexing.

The Home Instead Senior Care franchise network refer to this concept as the 40-70 Rule, a program launched to start important conversations early, before a crisis occurs.

Backed by recent research with seniors, their adult children, senior care and legal professionals, Home Instead, Inc. now wants to take those important conversations further.

The 40-70 Rule: An Action Plan for Successful Aging and accompanying resources encourage individuals and families not only to start those vital conversations soon, but to finish them with a plan that can help take the guesswork out of aging.

The plan encourrages individuals of all ages to ACT (Assess, Consider, Talk) on their desires and wishes for the future, then put their plan into action.
