When your parent/s become older they can almost become like a child of yours. I know this is not the case with everyone, not all grown children take part in their parents lives once they are older, but a lot of us do. My mom was an older parent, she had my youngest brother when she was past 40 so in our eyes she aged pretty fast. If she had been healthier, I know my mom would still be living on her own and perfectly independent. But by the age of 72 my mom had already suffered 4 strokes and each one took more and more from her, until it came to the point that one of us live with her.
