Caring for Aging Parents

By AM Northwest Staff

Elaine Sanchez was here to share a new tool she has developed  to help all of us care for our elderly parents. She shows us how to assess your parents' safety, gather critical personal, medical and financial information, also she says that it's important to develop a good support network consisting of family members, friends, neighbors and other individuals with whom your parents have relationships or regular contact.
