Three-Part Series on the Rigors of Aging Parent Caregiving

This week I discovered a great three-part series about aging parent caregiving, written by an adult child and published in the Redondo Beach Patch. I recommend taking a few minutes to read this set of short articles.

When Mom Gets Old by Vanessa Poster appeared on March 15 – 17, 2010, and describes Ms. Poster’s discoveries of her parents’ needs and how she went about assuming caregiving responsibilities. Of special interest is Poster’s persistence at questioning of her mother’s diagnosis, a dedication that resulted in a different diagnosis. Each of these columns is easily readable and chock-full of great information.

The other two parts are When Mom Gets Old: The Diagnosiss and When Mom Gets Old: Lessons Learned.
