Considering the grip that public employee unions have on this Democrat-controlled Legi...

Great article. Adult children of aging parents can sometimes be put into difficult situations as their parents grow older and begin to need care. This challenge is only compounded further when families live far apart. Do you give up everything and move back to where your parents are located? Do you force your parents to leave familiar surroundings to come live with you? Today, we are beginning to see more caregivers turn to mobile PERS devices as a means of bridging the care gap (while it is still viable to do so).
