* The physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual dynamics of aging
* The pros and cons of alternate care options--self-care, private pay, Medicare, and Medicaid
* How to be a good caregiver--valuable information you need to know, whether you're stepping into or continuing your care giving role

It might seem like a long way off, but the future is right around the corner.
