1443897538_8e8b97e3cd I just discovered this blog, The New Old Age, sponsored by the New York Times. From what I've read so far it promises to be a great resource for people who struggle with balancing self care with caring for their elderly loved ones. The mission of The New Old Age:

"Thanks to the marvels of medical science, our parents are living longer
than ever before. Adults over age 80 are the fastest growing segment of
the population, and most will spend years dependent on others for the
most basic needs. That burden falls to their baby boomer children, 77
million strong, who are flummoxed by the technicalities of eldercare,
turned upside down by the changed architecture of their families,
struggling to balance work and caregiving, and depleting their own
retirement savings in the process. In The New Old Age, we explore this
unprecedented intergenerational challenge."
