That Toddlin' Town


Gary Barg, Editor-in-Chief


Back from the snow and wind of Chicago -The Windy City.  Nice folks, great food, too darn cold! But that’s a Florida boy talkin’.  I spent a busy week meeting with friends and colleagues at the American Society on Aging /National Council on Aging’s annual conference. This year’s theme was “Lets RE-think Aging.”  As tomorrow is my 51st birthday, I’m all for that.

Last week,  I asked for comments about your experiences with work and caregiving.  You know the saying, “Be careful what you wish for”?  My inbox was full of fascinating stories about the challenges of being a working caregiver and how caregiving has impacted your work lives.
