Moving Abroad still you can take care of your parents

We Indians are caring, till today we have our roots binding to our country and those roots includes our family and loved ones. There are times when we have to take a call should we move ahead

abroad with the better job prospects or should we stay back and be with our family. Yes the decision is tough but we in 90% cases accept the offer to move abroad for better future.

There is no harm and many a times our parents also agree to our decision, but this is we who should have to take a lead in making the arrangements back home so that our parents remain healthy and our responsibilities are fulfilled.

So what all you need to do while preparing your parents to lead a better life:

1. Make them learn computers: Yes this is the most important thing which is a necessity these days. make you parents use computers so that they can operate it confidently. This will help in interacting with you while you are away through skype and viber.

2. Latest Mobile: Get them a smart phone so that they have the confidence to use it properly.

3. Learn to drive: If your parents have not learned driving by now, its high time they should learn or if they cant drive than its always a good idea to have a driver who can be available around when they require him There are several online driver services available who can be utilized for such purposes.

4. Caring for their Health: one of the major factor is the health concern, there are various care providers who are now available they days who provide home care and home visits for the elderly people. They are sending their trained staff for regular check-ups.

5. Health Insurance: However, most of the times we have health insurance or we have provisions of health benefits from the previous service providers. but in case there is no provision made up till now, then its the high time that you should make all such health related arrangements before making  a move.

6. Make them register with online banking: Get them registered with the online banking facilities so that they can have an access to their money without hassle.

However, if you have not made such arrangements till now, than these things can also be arranged from a distance and you can make the registration in regard to everything. Its just a  matter of understanding that you have to take the responsibility of your parents and being at distance doesn't mean that you are now no more connected with your roots.

There were times when our parents have made efforts so that we can become independent, now is the time when you should make your parents independent. Well the trend has been in the past that you should always be with your parents to take care of them, is not getting diluting due to the younger generation becoming migratory birds.

These things are now becoming very common in Indian society, so rather than just packing your bags and moving out without making the preparations for your parents is a bad choice.

On the other hands the parents also need to understand that their kids will have to move, weather abroad or to another city for work, the world is getting shrink-ed. So, they should be prepared to lead an independent life mentally, this will make them feel better rather than feeling depressed about their expectations from their kids.

Further, the parents should be eager to learn the new ways to lead their life conveniently, many a times this is observed that the parents are comfortable with the lifestyle that they are leading and take a back when it comes to learning or adapting to  the changing world. Rather than getting shattered about this fact parents should feel enthusiastic about learning new ways and techniques which have made our lives simpler and easier, which includes everything being social on facebook or ordering grocery from online apps or booking movie tickets from
