Lifelines Academy is an online community for educating and connecting people serving seniors. Its mission is to prepare businesses, professionals and families to meet the challenges of – and to realize the opportunities associated with—the aging of America. Baby Boomers turning 65 and the extension of life spans due to modern medicine are megatrends leading to a “Senior Tsunami” that has only just begun.
Raleigh Geriatric Care Management provides the highest quality older adult care assistance to families as they attempt to navigate alone the myriad of adult care resources.
Transition Aging Parents
Providing insight and information to adult children of aging parents so they may "thrive and find joy" in every stage of life!
I began writing my blog to share my experiences and lessons learned as I helped my mother through her health crisis. I helped her through a recovery period, helped her find interim home services, and also helped her select and move to a retirement community. I started from knowing nothing about eldercare, stages of aging or the range of options. I educated myself quickly. While I wanted my mother to have “quality of life”, I was very careful to listen to what she wanted. This was a huge learning experience for me… a major life changing experience. My perspective about aging has changed … for the better! I knew I had to share what I learned with others.
It is indeed a challenging time in our lives, but it can also be one of great joy, renewed bonds and reflection of lives well-lived!

A membership program with a pre-paid Personal Transportation Account™, ITN is a door-through-door service which includes help with steps and packages, heavy doors and walkers. Now in its fourteenth year, ITN recreates the comfort and convenience of private auto ownership and will supplement existing transportation system in Greater Cincinnati.
