www.eldercaring.ca that will cause those of you with aging parents to breathe a sigh of relief. When my parents were ill, my sister left her job and husband behind for months at a time to care for them in another province. My youngest brother left a long-term job with the Vancouver police to move his family to the town where my parents lived so that he could check on them daily. It takes a lot of work, and most of us are happy to do whatever we can, but when you're an only child it must be an incredible worry.
The post I mentioned talks about geriatric care managers. They are there to help the care-giving (or future care-giving) child with resources, contacts, information and practical help.

Isn't it great to know there is someone to help out, especially if you just don't know where to start?
