My name is Barbara Casey and, while I am the youngest of three children, I was deemed the caregiver for my 90-year-old father. I relocated him to Pennsylvania to be closer to me in August of 2015 and immediately started writing a blog to chronicle my experience and to help others avoid some of my stumbles along the way. I hope through my words you can find support, learn from my mistakes, maybe laugh a bit at the absurdity of it all, and realize that there are others out there walking the same path. After all, there is safety in numbers.
