Crisis planning is what you have to do when a parent or loved one is hospitalized, receives a serious mental health diagnosis, or for other reasons suddenly requires significantly more attention.

Your main focus will be getting through the dramatic first few days. When life settles down a bit, you’ll be able to consider how this life event impacts the other members of your family across the generations.

When will you do
crisis planning?

The hardest part about a crisis is that you don’t know when it will happen. It could as easily be while you’re on vacation as when you’re in an important meeting at work. What we can tell you is that there is never a convenient time. But when that time comes, the crisis takes priority over everything else.
