As part of a series of conversations around life transitions, Maya Fisher-French speaks with financial planner Louis van der Merwe of WealthUp about how adult children can support their ageing parents.

Whether you are the adult child of an elderly parent or getting older and starting to think about your future, we need to plan for the reality that as we get older, we become less able.

Decisions need to be made about how we want to live this part of our lives.

Louis discusses how to have the difficult conversations, how to ensure the person you are supporting retains their sense of agency and independence, as well as the more practical issues around money management and protecting yourself or loved ones from financial abuse.
