An aging couple smiling and sitting with their adult children and young grandchildren.Are you a Baby Boomer with aging parents in NY? If so, you may wish to consider the best ways to watch out for the good people who raised you as they ease into their old age. There may well come a time when good old Mom and Dad will need to make a major change of residence.

Maybe your elderly parent wishes to remain independent, but their long-time house is just too big for them to manage anymore.
