About Us

We are a news aggregator and blog  offering caregivers the latest information and resources on elderly care, Alzheimer’s Disease and other illnesses. Caring For Mom And Dad was originally founded in 2008 by two sisters, Josie and Rose who were caring for two disabled parents: their mother had Alzheimer’s and their father with heart and lung illnesses, stroke, broken hip and numerous bouts with pneumonia. Later Betty, another relative, also developed Alzheimer’s disease.  Fortunately for us, caring for our parents and relative at home  made a big difference in the quality of their lives, in addition to extending their lives.  We feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to care for our beloved mom and dad at home where they felt happiest and most comfortable until the day they passed away.

Caring For Mom and Dad was established  to provide other caregivers easy accessible information that we did not have at our disposal. We have learned that being armed with the best resources makes you a powerful patient advocate. Nobody knows your loved one(s) more than you.   If you have any news to share on events local to your area, please feel free to contact us.
