Constant travel for her job made it a challenge to be involved in her parents' health and living situation as they aged. In 2015 everything changed when she became responsible for her disabled mother after her father's death. She found herself asking "what do I do?" and "where do I start?" as her caregiver, as her financial adviser, and as her daughter. Figuring out the answers to those burning questions drove home the need to be an effective advocate for our aging parents.
