The journey with aging parents through their decline in health, both physical and mental, leads through unfamiliar territory for most people. We four women are on this arduous and sometimes lonely road. We do our best to love, care for, intercede, disagree with, and advocate for our elderly parents; at the same time, we are watching them slip away. Though we are not unique in our grief and pain, we’ve found little in print that speaks to our immediate experience. Thus, our blog is born to reach out to others both for their sake and, certainly, for our own.
