Dear Dawn,

I’ve been searching the internet for information and resources about caring for my dad and I’m finding a lot of referral sites that want my personal information first.  It’s frustrating trying to search the internet when I keep getting inundated by services I don’t want.  What I really need at this point is some reliable information.  Can you direct me to a reliable source of senior care information?

Dear Dawn,

Dear Dawn,

My sister and I cannot agree if it’s time or not for our mother to move into an Assisted Living community yet. We know she really can’t continue much longer on her own, but she is reluctant to even look into senior housing options. How will we really know if it’s time for us to move her from her home and place her in a community before it’s too late? Read More
