Muriel from New Jersey

My husband, age 75, and I care for my 98 year-old father in our home. We have been blessed to be able to prepare a living area where he can thrive while we monitor his activity. My husband has spoiled him with wonderful cooking and he works on three books at his computer daily. We have a small network of caregivers who step in from time to time so we can take breaks here and there. We are concerned that as we continue to age, he doesn’t seem to age at all. The next level of care for us may be more challenging!
