Deborah Stone

Deborah Stone set up Myageingparent.com with Alex Ingram.

Both of them lost their fathers some years ago and have a single parent living. They know first-hand how important it is to try to ensure that our parents are happy, contented and as healthy as possible. Sometimes, they help their mums with little everyday tasks, such as sorting out car insurance, or banking. On other occasions, the problems they have to deal with have been more serious, such as falls at home and getting the right care for recuperation. They were finding it very difficult to find all the information they needed and it often took a long time to locate the right advice.

So they developed the concept of myageingparent.com, a free website aimed at helping you to help them, whether it is your elderly parent, older friend or relative. Packed full of information, it is a proactive site, which helps you find the answers to all the questions you might have. Whether you need specific information on care options, local authority funding, or how to keep them active, busy and healthy, myageingparent.com provides it all. And of course, there are many helpful articles on how you can cope with the stress of looking after your parents as they age.
