Welcome to Adulting the Aging.  Maybe you've reached this site because you are a senior looking for assistance for yourself or spouse.  Maybe you're searching the web because you're a part of the "sandwich generation" seeking guidance for your aging parent.  Or maybe you've stumbled across this page completely by accident.  Whatever the reason that landed you here, we hope this site will provide you with some of the answers you're seeking.


Alright, let's be real for a moment... there are very few guarantees in life, but one of them is that we all eventually age.  It's sometimes hard to accept that aging is inevitable, but even more-so when you're watching a loved one age.  If you're reading this right now thinking that this information does not apply to you or your current life situation, the fact is, you may someday find this information invaluable. 

A simple google search for aging and/or caregiving will most likely result in information overload.  There is a lot out there to read, interpret, and decipher.  It can be extremely overwhelming, especially if you find yourself in a sudden caregiver position.  The goal of this site is to narrow down some pertinent information and help you, the caregiver (or future caregiver), prepare and navigate through some of the obstacles that you may encounter on your journey adulting the aging.

Full Transparency

In a world where virtually anyone can post anything online as "fact" for the world read/see, we feel it's important to be upfront and honest.  With that said, we have only two things to note before we begin. 


Firstly, this site offers experience, not advice.  Although we've gained a tremendous amount of knowledge through my personal experience as caregivers, we are not medical professionals. However, we are very fortunate to have many medical professionals as family and friends in our lives.  Therefore, some experiences shared on this site involve medical information that is/was provided by medical professionals. This information is in no way intended to diagnose or treat any medical symptoms, illnesses, or conditions.  It's simply to help others through real life experiences.  


Secondly, please keep in mind that everyone's situation is different.  We all come from different walks of life and are dealing with different challenges.  What worked in our situation does not necessarily mean that it is advisable in your situation.  Conversely, what didn't work for us, does not necessarily mean that it will not work in your situation.  It's always advisable to reach out to your doctor or a medical professional if you have any questions or concerns about implementing anything new into your particular situation.


Meet Ashley & Amber

Sandwich generation caregivers. Passionate about sharing ideas and information to give other caregivers inspiration and confidence.

Ashley & Amber are former co-caregivers for their 89 year old grandmother (who recently passed) and Amber is currently primary caregiver for their 70 year old mother.  Their grandmother had lived with their mother since their grandfather passed 30 years ago.  They grew up in a 3, and sometimes 4 generation household.  Unfortunately, as their mother's health began to decline, it became abundantly clear that she was no longer able to care for their grandmother.  With the help of their Aunt Kathy, they began their journey of caregiving.
