What is ElderAction?

 I recently discovered ElderAction and think you should know about it. Jim and Caroline James, the founders, are on a mission of great importance for seniors.

Here's what they say on their website:

"We’re Jim & Caroline and we’re based out of Raleigh, NC. About five years ago, we had to return to our hometown to care for our ailing parents. Little did we know how much we’d learn about the modern senior condition.  Since that first year of our return, we’ve been doing our best to fight for senior mental health and support. We hope you’ll join us in this!"

This looks to me like a significant effort on behalf of our elders. At the moment, ElderAction's focus is on identifying useful resources for highlighting the many issues of aging and eldercare. Check it out, but stay tuned for more. I suspect there will be lots of great information and advice coming from this new source.
