Aging In Place Commentary Page

public speaking

I've created this Aging in place commentary page to fill a niche that has developed with visitors to my site. I've been receiving emails that have made me recognize the need to generate another forum for caregivers and aging baby boomers to express themselves.

Are you an aging baby boomer with questions and concerns about aging in place or aging in general?

Are you a family caregiver needing support and a place to vent?

Are you a family member that needs information on how to advocate for the aging senior in your life?

Are you a health care professional that has experience and knowledge that you can share with others?

Do you want to share information about your care giving experience? Or do you have a question about something that you are unsure of?

Tired of not being listened to? Of not getting your point across?

Now is your chance to have your say. Share your unique point of view!

PLEASE NOTE: This page is intended to provide an outlet for people that are providing and advocating for an aging senior in their life. It is not intended as a replacement for legal, medical or professional advice.

Want to express yourself?Do it here!

You're probably not alone--your personal experience could resonate with other readers on this site. Share your stories, ask your questions, rant, rave or stomp your feet!

No profanity or flames please this is a Family Friendly site.

If you posted a question and it did not get published this maybe why -

Please! Use a name and where you are from. Otherwise I will have to delete your message.

If your email address is wrong and I can not contact you about your question it will be deleted!
