It's not a disease: Aging means: one has been around longer. Do they show less interest in life? Are they less excited about doing things, their surrounding? It is normal to realize at some point that we don't quite belong here since we have to go once our time is up. It is a complicated issue, but in few practical words: love them more, enjoy them more, as much as possible.

Roomy question: Whether it's your parents or your own generation, & whatever the specifics are, here's some generic ideas. Organize biological, legal, financial, medical and creative information, associated paperwork & unique things. Store in secure identified container. If there are known problems - research online to prepare for probable future status to avoid bad surprises. Talk with each other asap & again.
