NBC's medical reporter Snyderman talks about caregiving her own parents

NBC's medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman covered her increasing role for her two living parents, who appear to have moved in to her home in Princeton NJ from Indiana.

The mother is taking care of the ailing father, but now they both need attention.
The family talked about a living will, and the father did not want tube, ventilators, and the like.

The link for the story at NBC is here.

This family seems to have its caregiving well in hand.  And now Nancy has responsible people staying in her home when she works and travels, so that's a plus.  It's better to be a caregiver in your own home than in your parents'.
