About the Senior Advocate
Jameson & Associates
It is now 6 years since I lost my mother. As happens so often, caregiving was provided by family members struggling with their own obligations while trying to keep someone they love comfortable and safe.
Ironically, I ended up working for a nonprofit serving the elderly and disabled shortly after my mother passed. Little did I know about the wide variety of companies and services that exist to serve seniors - and those who care for them.
