The answer to this question tells us much about our society. Do we recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by our parents and grandparents by providing the best possible care? Or, do we just barely provide the basics and “let the chips fall where they may”?
My local newspaper, The Roanoke Times, is writing a series of articles on the challenges presented by our fast-growing elderly population. The series, entitled “Age of Uncertainty” is written by reporter Beth Macy. The first two articles appeared in the March 15 and 16 editions of the Roanoke Times.
I urge you to follow the series and you may even wish to contribute to your “story” by emailing Beth Macy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
