Generation X and Caregiving

I recently interviewed Ryan Malone, managing editor of Inside Assisted Living, on my radio program, Aging with Grace. I invited him to discuss his book By Families, For Families Guide to Assisted Living. During the course of the interview I couldn't help but be taken by his passion and commitment to make sure his mom received the best assisted living care that he could find and she could afford.

His primary goal was to move his mother closer to him after she had a devastating stroke. He researched, called and visited dozens of communities until he found the one that would provide her with environment that she would want and needed.

Generation X and/or Y has the reputation of being all about "me me me." My guess is there are many more young people like Ryan, at least I hope so.

  1. I'm sure that many more young people would rise to the occasion if they were in the same situation.
