Rounding the Circle of Love: Growing Up As She Grows Old

Now available from Amazon.com

“How many of us will need to care for aging parents?” … “Fact filled book with easy reference. When you keep an elder in her home, she receives more personalized care than might otherwise be the case. Her world can be adapted to meet her needs, something that might not be possible within an institutional setting. Because it offers these obvious advantages among many others residential care has become a national trend. In spite of this, a strong warning seems warranted. Though it is often described in glowing terms, this arrangement demands a great deal from caregivers, placing them under considerable stress.”

GrandCare Systems featured in Harriet Tramer’s newest book.

We are happy to support author and journalist Harriet Tramer as she shares with us her discoveries and insights on caring for an aging parent.
