Together we had formed MILLDENHALL, a lifestyle site, to help individuals navigate the "tightrope walk" that many of us face - balancing family, personal, and professional commitments.
We soon realized that one of the most stressful issues being faced by many of us, was how to support an aging parent, relative or friend.
In our professional and personal lives, we have seen the distress experienced when individuals and families feel ill-equipped and unprepared to support a senior. We were asked, time and time again, to provide tips to friends who were struggling to get up to speed with the information and resources they needed.
Simple, we became passionate about providing great resources. We started out developing a simple set of PDF documents for friends and family; we then added videos. Once we got started, we couldn't stop! We realized that there was a real need for people to find reliable, easy to access information in one spot. We don't focus on looking great. The videos are not fancy (most were done at the kitchen table)! We focused on making sure that the information was practical and great.
We now want to make these resources available to everyone 24/7.
