I just wanted to reach out and thank you for your page http://www.gracemanagement.com/resources/ . We recently made the decision to put my mother into a senior living facility. After my dad passed away last year, the house became too much for her to maintain, so we decided that a senior living home would be the best place for her.
My mom isn’t too tech-savvy, and my dad took care of most things for her so living on her own and taking care of herself is very new. I started researching different things to help her, and I found your page. I printed off a bunch of different resources and articles for her and I really think it’s given her some more confidence and independence. Thank you for having so many great resources – they’ve not only been helpful to her, but to my sister and I in taking care of her.
My mom still has her license, though my dad did most of the driving. My sister and I take turns driving her most places she needs to go, but she still gets behind the wheel from time to time to run small errands. I wanted to pass you along a good resource I found for aging drivers at http://www.partsgeek.com/mmparts/the_aging_drivers_safety_guide.html .I thought it might be a good addition to your resources – it’s been really helpful to my mom.
Thanks again and enjoy the rest of your week!
