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My unpublished manuscript, focusing on helping adult children facing their parents' aging challenges, was the beginning.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.

This is a very insightful article. I think you hit the nail right on the head. The more wisdom, knowledge, awareness one has about a subject (especially a stressful one) the easier it is to deal with. As my parents are aging I’m doing research to make this transition easier for them and for me. I recently read a very insightful book that I recommend to you and your readers called “Voice of Experience: Stories About Health Care and the Elderly “by a Doctor and RN husband and wife team. http://www.voiceofexperiencebrody.com/ …very intuitive advice..comforting reading about the struggles we all eventually face…
Deborah, appreciate your comment and the book advice (the latter I rarely include unless I’ve read the book). That said, while I haven’t had time to read their book, I linked to the Brody’s blog http://blog.voiceofexperiencebrody.com/ and find it excellent and well-written. Thus, I’ve added the blog’s link. Will check out the book soon.
