The holidays offer a once-a-year time to visit with elderly relatives who live at a distance. These holiday visits are a good time to assess what assistance parents or other elderly loved ones might need.
"Home for the Holidays - what to look for during your annual visit to elderly relatives" is a written blog I published earlier this week. Because videos tend to get more views than written blog do readers, I have summarized some of the post here.
