Welcome to a blog with a humorous approach on tackling all aspects of navigating through elder care with senior parents. Whether the obstacle you and your aging loved one(s) are faced with is finding a nursing home or assisted living facility, senior driving, financial stress, or senior nutritional concerns, know that you are not alone in this endeavor. Even if you aren’t currently experiencing any of this as of yet with your loved one(s), it may give you a good laugh.
