My Eldercare Experience

William R. Eubank

This page is about eldercare. It has my public journal about my efforts at eldercare with my Mother. Mother has several medical complications that make it impossible for her to cook for herself or do house hold duties. She is still mobile (with a walker) but is using an oxygen condenser.

I am in the process of writing a series of articles about my experience in eldercare called Frontiers. This series first appeared in infoZine - Kansas City's Digital Monthly Magazine, in December of 1995.

The article from May 1996 appeared in modified form in Caregiving in August of that year.

As of June 1997, I will have been in this "position" for two years. I am a lot more relaxed about the process now - perhaps, that is why I haven't written as much lately.

Like Bob Hoffman, (Hoffmann Family Home Page), I turned to the computer to find information and as an outlet for my energy. I have done extensive work as a volunteer on the cyber frontier - with the Greater Kansas City Chapter of the American Red Cross, Santa Fe Railway Historical and Modeling Society and several other regional and national organizations.

My links related to elder care are on this computer as well as links to my other work.
