Helping the Elderly in their Twilight Years: Home

A collection of information to help the reader understand the problems one might face and the resources available as one cares for an elderly family member or friend

Sadly, these are some comments heard by elderly people living alone:

"I feel like a leech on my family"

"They have to feed us since we're still alive, but they put us in these cubbyholes and wait for us to die" (resident of a nursing home)

Loneliness, lack of purpose, depression...these are all problems that elderly face on a daily basis. Find here resources to help solve the difficulties encountered by senior family and friends.

This page contains more general information, and the other pages delve into resources for particular areas.

ELDERLY PARENT CARE

Caring for our seniors is perhaps the greatest responsibility we have.

Those who walked before us have given so much and made possible the life we all enjoy.
