Aging Life Care Managers care for parents when families can’t

By Margit B. Weisgal, Contributing Writer – Published in Baltimore Sun Media

Stanley Cook lives in New Jersey; his parents, now in their late 80s, in Ohio. For a while, they managed their lives by hiring a part-time driver who could take them on their errands and help with small tasks. Soon, that wasn’t sufficient. Many more doctors’ appointments – but what did the doctor say? Greater difficulty getting around – but what if one of them had a fall? Flying back and forth wasn’t really feasible or practical. Since Cook left his hometown years ago, he didn’t know what services or support were available or to whom he could go for help.
