Who could have guessed the role that the Facebook group LA Elderly would play for family caregivers and those in the eldercare industry?
Three short years later, we are bringing forth a new dimension of LA Elderly. The website LA Elderly: Information, Connection and Inspiration is designed to reach even more individuals who are searching for information and meaning in a time of life that no one really plans for–when the care and comfort of elderly loved one’s becomes the responsibility of others. 
LA Elderly: Information, connection and inspiration is divided into 5 sections:
  1. Information:  wisdom that is shared by others who have more experience
  2. Inspiration:  awakening inside that what we do matters
  3. Self Care:  building one’s capacity to be true to oneself on a consistent basis
  4. Connection:  human relationships that deepen a moment, inspire a spark of light and create trust
  5. Resources:  supports that help make moments in time feel more doable and effective
All sections together comprise a holistic approach to eldercare and being in the sandwich generation. No one section is more important than the other. All the sections together create a robust picture of what can be a lonely and bleak time in life. 
Here you can connect ideas and people,  discover inspiration to move forward and ways to take care of yourself, gather information to solve and find resources in the Los Angeles community so you do not have to feel you are alone. 
Grab a cup of tea or your favorite beverage and settle in.  See what LA Elderly the website has to offer. 
Check us out and visit often.

Potholes and Pizza: A mother-daughter journey on the road of dementia

I am not an expert in dementia, it found me. One June day in 2009, my mother had her first bout with confusion….about her birthday and when it was. For the next decade, we watched her essence chip away month by month, year by year. She passed in December of 2017. This is our story.

In January of 2018, I launched a Facebook group called LA Elderly designed for support and exchange of information for those who care for the elderly family members and those in the eldercare industry.

Feautured Book : Losing Your Parents, Finding Yourself

The Defining Point of Adult Life

Victoria Secunda

Losing Your Parents, Finding Your Self is a very different kind of book that explores what happens to us as children when one or both of our parents die.

Most of us have multiple emotions when a parent dies and these emotions can be time bound or effectively change us forever. As Victoria Secunda shares, we still feel semi-orphaned when the first parent dies and orphaned when the second parent dies and it doesn’t matter how old we are when these events happen.

Jane Bryan Quinn who reviewed the book writes “This book is not about grief. It’s about the astounding and unexpected changes that occur in people when parents die”. Reading this book will create an opening to think, reflect and ponder the journey of a parent-adult child relationship.

After a 75-year-old immigrant mother gets fired from her job, her son takes her on a bucket-list adventure to reclaim her life. As she struggles to find work, he documents a journey that uncovers the betrayals plaguing her past and the economic insecurity shaping not only her future, but also that of an entire generation.
