I’m delighted that I will be blogging weekly for AARP on family caregiving. It is a subject I know too well. Last year, I took care of three 91-year-olds: my mother; my mother-in-law; and my dog. Sadly, only my mother-in-law is left standing (via a walker).
I will be covering the latest studies, news, and trends, as well as articles and books on the topic. I’m hoping to get some ideas from you, too. What would you like me to write about? What caregiving issues concern you? Know of any cool programs for caregivers?
My AARP blog on palliative care will be posted this week. When it is, you will find it here.
In the meantime, I was asked to blog on a fascinating, new MetLife study (not caregiving) that provides insight into how Gen Xers, Gen Yers, and Boomers view their financial obligations to one another. What Boomers say might surprise you.
