Dear Carol: I am an only child and live 600 miles from my elderly parents. They need some assistance, and I worry about them. I’m married, have a job and young children. My parents don’t want to move. How do I care for them and still keep my job and family life going? CeeCee
Dear CeeCee: There are so many adult children in your circumstances that a fairly new industry has evolved. Geriatric care managers, or care coordinators, can be hired to watch over the changing needs of your parents.
