Welcome to the ElderWise Public Library, a collection of short articles, information, and links gathered from a variety of sources.

Moving house is ranked among life's 10 most stressful events. Helping a senior to move can overwhelm and exhaust not only the older person but also family and friends who are assisting with the move.
For tips and expert insight, read "Managing Moves for Seniors" by Dawn Rennie, Transitions Inc.

New article in "health"

Seniors with health problems can still travel safely, particularly if they are accompanied by a caregiver companion. Seniors' Travel: How Caregiver Companions Help, written by Classic Caregivers, provides helpful tips for planning a successful trip.
