Holiday visits with aging parents or grandparents may offer the first opportunity in several months to evaluate changes in family members' lives from previous visits; changes that could indicate a need for increased support. HomeFinder.com believes "home" is synonymous with comfort, security and safety – during the holidays and year-round. It is important that families have the resources to ensure their aging loved ones can enjoy living safely and with comfort and dignity throughout the year.

"HomeFinder.com sympathizes with the complexities that independent home owners can have as they age," said Doug Breaker, president and CEO, HomeFinder.com. "Partnering with Easter Seals this holiday season helps raise awareness on the importance of maintaining that sense of home for the ones who instilled it in us - aging parents, grandparents, and loved ones."

Easter Seals offers guidance to families who provide care for their aging parents, including Loving Conversations, online resources for adult day services, and solutions for common transportation challenges. It also provides advice for caregivers on healthcare, living arrangements, alternative forms of transportation, financial management, legal issues, and community support groups. Most importantly, Easter Seals can walk families through the necessary, tough discussions and overall decision processes.       

"We are thankful for HomeFinder.com's support in raising awareness and furthering our mission to offer help, hope and answers for families with aging loved ones," said James E. Williams, Jr., president and chief executive officer, Easter Seals. "Together, we can help people better understand the critical need for home safety and issues around housing, independence and transportation."
