WoW! This is a first for me. The first day on the blog and all I can do is sit here in wonderment. I have so much to say, but it will have to wait for future posts.
This blog is for you, the reader, your family members, and your friends. Please share the information here. My goal is to help you learn how to have more collaborative conversations with your aging parents about the life-changing events they will face as they age and the sometimes scary prospect of end-of-life preparation. Please ask me questions.
I will post on Sundays and Wednesdays with snippets of information in each post. All of us have busy lives and multiple things to do in our free time so in an endeavor to keep the posts short I’ll usually only touch on one topic at a time. Conversations with family members can be difficult. Tread lightly and take baby steps. Please leave comments.
You can expect to find information here about aging issues, advocacy, building relationships, caretaking, developmental needs, emergencies, end-of-life planning, finances, health care, housing, respite, and safety, There are entire books written on each of these subjects, but I’ll try to give you the basics then link you with connections on where you can find more information. Please be interactive on this blog.
My background in home health and private duty nursing has shown me many families who have lacked information on how to proceed with love, respect, and dignity through the muddy waters of aging, Alzheimers, chronic illness, and dementia. Let’s work together to explore the information available so you can avoid the same mistakes.
Until next time…
All my best,
