Holidays and families. A little jingle to get you going, with a new 2012 stanza added.

T’ Was the fight after Christmas, when all families know,
It’s better to forgive than tell them to F. O.,
Mom probably liked you better, if memory serves,
So while I am a P.O.A., she will get what she deserves.

Come On siblings and get off your butts,
I need alittle help, ‘cause I really am going nuts,
I am pulled in many directions, with no time of my own,
Let’s hire an expert who we can speak with by phone.

This Plan will save time and money; and help us agree,
We can all care for Mom, in addition to me!
A Plan of Care will outline Mom’s needs,
Working together, we all will succeed.

All families are strange, of this I am sure,
Now where did we put Elder Caring’s brochure?

My next blog will be in 2013. Looking forward to ‘talking’ with you then. Happy New Year!
