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!

Experience the Aging Journey
WAIT. WHAT? I'M GOING TO BE OLD ONE DAY? That's right, we all are, but that's not a bad thing, the alternative doesn't sound like much fun does it?
Think about this for a second, every elderly person out there was once your age and one day you'll be their age. It's all relative, there's always someone who thinks of you as young (think of your parents) and someone who thinks of you as old (think of your kids).
LEARN. CONNECT. VALUE, this is Gray Matters Alliance’s mission. We want to correct the misconceptions and stereotypes associated with aging and seniors. By joining together we can encourage patience, tolerance and empathy. Our sensitivty workshops are not only unique and thought provoking but allow the participants to experience the aging journey first hand through simulated activities while having the same limitations that most seniors experience.
