Czapla said: “It makes it clear that all family caregivers should have a proper plan to protect their children and dependents. And one of the biggest mistakes parents can make is to say they are too busy or ‘will think about it later’ when it comes to insurance. The best way to deal with the times we are too afraid to think about is to plan.”
