ParentYourParents.com CEO And Co-Founder, Amber Sandhoff, Was A Guest On Local Program, Vegas, Inc
Vegas, Inc. recently devoted a segment to caring for aging parents and medication management for seniors.
- (1888PressRelease) July 06, 2011 - Amber Sandhoff, CEO and co-founder of www.ParentYourParents.com was a guest discussing MedFolio, a medication management system, and caring for your aging parents on Vegas, Inc. with host Dana Gentry. Sandhoff shared some information about the MedFolio device as well as information that can be found on the ParentYourParents.com website.
In August of 2008, Sandhoff, along with her business partner Karen Frye, launched ParentYourParents.com after suddenly being thrust into a caregiver's role. With no notice she found herself in a position of caring for her ill father long distance. Upon seeing him in the hospital and talking with his doctor's, none were optimistic, she started a caregiver's journey that continues today.
On the heels of the crisis with her father her step-father, who had a setback with treatment for prostate Cancer, chose to stop all treatment. As her step-father's wish was to remain at home, Sandhoff was faced with dealing with hospice and helping her mother go through the terrible heartbreak of letting go of her husband of more than 18 years.
Going through these life experiences, Sandhoff realized she was not alone in having to face and deal with aging parent's health and livelihood. "Our parents not only look to us for help, but they see us as a resource and depend on us for guidance. That is why I decided to launch this website," says Sandhoff. "To help people who don't know where to turn for resources and information about caring for their aging parents."
Sandhoff's 89 year old grandmother lived with dementia for nearly 8 years in an assisted living community. "My 65 year old mother and I watched her physical capabilities decline drastically the last few years of her life. We were fortunate that we chose a community (purely by accident) that could assist and care for her as the disease progressed and the level of care she needed increased. Not all assisted living communities offer increased levels of care, which would have meant moving her to another and would have been very traumatic for her," explains Sandhoff. "Our website offers articles, documents and blogs that educate our visitors and explain the options that are out there, things to look for, questions to ask and much, much more."
"The more I talk with people about our website and my experiences, the more I realize there are hundreds of thousands of people out there like me. Literally everyone 40 years old or older is either going through a situation with a family member(s), or knows someone who is. They are looking for information, resources and assistance for their aging parents and loved ones. I am very proud ParentYourParents.com offers such a wide variety of national, state and local resources and information to our visitors," Sandhoff concludes.
