  1. My parents have become “part-time” caregivers the past few months as the health of my grandparents has gone south. I can see the stress and difficulty of taking on the responsibility of being a caregiver.

    • Caring for a parent or grandparent can absolutely turn a family’s life upside down. Unfortunately, we are only at the leading edge of what will be a tsunami with respect to managing healthcare. Most families and our system are probably not ready for the wave of aging Baby Boomers. The sheer number of Boomers and the fact that we are living longer – increasing the chances that diseases like Alzheimers will be diagnosed within more families – will present a number of challenges.

      Thanks for stopping by and kicking off the conversation, David.
