About Gary

Hi! I'm Gary, in my early 50s, and sole surviving sibling adult caregiver to my elderly widowed mom in her 80s, since my dad passed away from cancer almost 10 years ago. Mom and I have been on a long caregiving journey, and now she is seeing some rewards--and herself--for the first time in a long time as a new resident of a senior residence. Balancing this with my work, my own chronic health physical challenges, and moving on selling our old house.. But this site has been such a lifesaver...here's to all us caregivers! In 2012, I finally also earned my Certificate in Graduate Studies in Gerontology: Management of Aging Services from UMass/Boston. --I've learned so much on this journey! :)
