The unexpected costs of caring for your elderly parents
Debbie Walker had just spent the evening working the red carpets at the Gemini Awards in Richmond, B.C. After a late night of escorting stars and mingling at parties, the publicist returned the following day to the Sechelt ranch home she shared with her elderly mother.
Her mother usually sat on the porch in the afternoons and it was a warm, sunny day. But she wasn’t there. Inside, Ms. Walker found that her mother had fallen in the bathroom and called an ambulance.
