We created The Decision Tree of Aging for people like us. We are busy professionals trying to balance work, family and caring for aging parents. When my mom had a medical emergency, after a few days in the hospital, I was faced with finding an assisted living community within 24 hours of discharge. Even with prior planning and vetting communities, securing a present opening was difficult. After getting her settled, which was no small task, I had to clean out my mom’s condo and sell it while executing Power of Attorney with financial institutions. I was pulled in so many directions. I am the guy who wrote the book, and it was still overwhelming at times. I needed help, resources, and community.
