I'm a middle-aged writer and editor living in Madison, Wisconsin with my life partner, our adolescent goddaughter, a standard poodle, two cats, and some chickens. I'm a long-distance caregiver -- but not primary caregiver -- for my parents, who recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary and who still live in their own home even though both have dementia. One of my brothers now lives with them and manages their care, which is substantial. The other three of us siblings rotate in for a week or so at a time, three or four times a year each. My parents are sweet and delightful, even as their needs increase and life with/around them becomes more stressful and challenging.
