Wake Living Magazine Winter 2018: "Should I Stay or Should I Go?"

Many of us are looking forward to spending time with family in the coming weeks. 

Sometimes, extended stays with aging parents or loved ones at this time of year causes us to notice things we hadn't seen before - Mom is slowing down a bit, Dad seems to have trouble remembering things he used to recall easily. 

My wife, Gina, and I went through the same thing as my mother, Emily, started to age. We knew more about these things than some of our friends because of our work with caregivers and families, but it was still difficult. 

In our latest "Senior Spotlight" column in Wake Living, we outline three questions you can ask as you consider whether it's time to help your loved one stay in their home or find another place to live that can help keep them safe, healthy, and thriving in this next stage of their lives.
