  • What Happened to Time?

  •  As an adult child taking care of an aging parent, it can be a challenge to know when to step in and become more involved in their care. Sometimes it’s easy to identify when the right time is, but usually it is not. Even approaching the topic can be tricky. Emotions will run high and words can be misconstrued.
