Hi! We are Risa and Kari, sisters who have been caring for our mother since 2001 after she suffered a debilitating stroke. She now suffers from Parkinson’s. Our father lives in a nursing home with dementia after being diagnosed in 2016.
We develop caregiving strategies, talk with top experts about aging, caregiving and wellness, find innovative solutions from around the world and discover well-designed and useful aids to help relieve the stress and struggle associated with caring for an elderly loved one.
We want to share our findings with you. Join us on our journey!
In health and happiness,
We are living longer because of advances in healthcare and technology. A longer life means we have a greater chance of living with a disability or chronic illness and will need assistance with daily life. Although many of the traditional models of care no longer fit in a 21st century lifestyle, there is some basic important information that everyone should know regardless of your age or ailment. See our list of the most frequently asked questions people based on your stage in the process.
We provide busy family members and caregivers with new innovative solutions and revolutionary ideas from around the world to reduce the overwhelming stress that comes with caring for a loved one.
We help overwhelmed family members and caregivers supplement western medical treatment, find alternative care, or holistic treatment solutions and suggestions.
All families are different. When it comes to your care or caring for the older adult in your life, we believe that food, culture and language are integral for your well-being, treatment, and health.
The Modern Age TV is a YouTube channel for those who seek new, integrative and holistic ideas and approaches to aging and caregiving with peace of mind. We provide practical tips from our near two decades of caregiving and interview top experts discussing everything from how palliative care can drastically change a patient’s quality of life to how to find love after 60. With 20+ years of experience in film and TV, Risa is passionate to share innovative and revolutionary ideas, rethinking how we age and live our later years with dignity, choice and comfort.
We have compiled a helpful curated list of books that will provide valuable information, insight and save you time.
