Daughter caregiver with aging motherOur next forum call (Wednesday Feb 9th at 6.30 pm ET) is on caregiving and the reversal of roles between mothers and daughters.

Here are some links to on line resources that have lots of information and helpful advice:

  • The New York Times has a blog on caring for aging parents called The New Old Age. It’s a must read!

In The New Old Age, we explore this unprecedented intergenerational challenge.

  • Caring.com is a really helpful site aimed at simplifying caregiving and supporting caregivers.

  • Strength for Caring is a community of caregivers and experts offering support.

  • Find more links and follow the real life story of a caregiver called Tricia at her blog Elderland.net
