James Thompson

“For anyone who has a parent over the age of 70 this is a must. Think of a centralized hub of critical information for your loved one(s). That’s ParentFile.”

How it Works

AS YOUR PARENTS GET OLDER!

Join the Thousands Being Proactive!

We Know You’re Busy....But You Care.

We are living in a time of incredible uncertainty, but the one thing that’s for sure is that everyone could use a little help right now. Especially our parents, whether they admit it or not.

Well, now’s our time to shine. We can help our parents navigate whatever life throws at them…together. And while we can’t be there with them in person, we can certainly still help, now more than ever.

Set Your Parents Up With a Digital Home Assistant 

Regardless of your parent’s technology level, having an Amazon Alexa or Google Home in the house can make such a huge difference for them. We’ve got a 1-page instruction sheet for you to send to them or explain over the phone for how to set it up and use it in a way that makes their lives so much easier.

Zoom Sunday Night Dinners 

Zoom Sunday Night Dinners 

While not nearly as ideal in person, why not start a new tradition with your parents where they at least get to “see you” over video one night a week over Sunday Night Dinners. What can make it even more fun is picking the same recipe (or takeout place) to have together each week. The tradition of at least one night a week “seeing you” can make such a difference especially during times like right now.

Book & TV Recommendations 

Book & TV Recommendations 

The book Boys in the Boat is our top recommendation for Fall to read with your Dad (especially if they like sports!).   On the TV side, if you/your Mom have not already seen the series Downton Abbey, it’s a great one to watch at the same time. Want more ideas, click here for our full weekly listings of new recommendations to share a book or tv series with your parent.

Thinking of You 

Thinking of You 

This month’s focus is sending your parents a letter. There is still something about opening the mail that everyone loves, especially our parents. Even if all you do is recount your favorite childhood memory to them, trust is, it will make their day (and week!). If you have your own kids, have them include something as well!
