Author: Helping Children of Divorce (Schocken Books)
My unpublished manuscript, focusing on helping adult children facing their parents' aging challenges, was the beginning. It had just been accepted by a top literary agent in NY. Then came the 2008 economic collapse, hitting publishing companies hard. So she suggested I write a blog using my manuscript's ideas and insights + timely information. Help! Aging Parents was the result.
A decade later Inching Towards 80 is a natural continuation as I realize that my readers and I--every day--are inching towards 80. Actually we do this from the day we are born, don't we?
And I realize the Sr. Advisors to my Aging Parents blog contributed so much insight, expertise, and wisdom about aging smart that it make sense to apply it for our own benefit as we continue life's journey.
Inching Towards 80 honors them–and motivates me–to share their wisdom, combine it with reputable research, creative ideas, and my counseling background so we can all age smarter.

Love the honesty of that post – best I’ve seen today 🙂
You have a great sense of humor! 🙂
The only way to look at life sometimes Susan 🙂
How true. Especially when aging parents are involved.
Yes, but my blog only started 4 months ago.
I spent a day or two looking around, and it seemed to suit me… I did change the background colour etc to make it more my style, but that was all.
As most of my stuff consists of lengthy text based drivel interspersed with photos, I needed a theme which didn’t restrict the text space too much.
Appreciate the serious info. Now looking forward to more humor~
