Because available aging services and resources are very fragmented and not well known, many of us have had trouble finding affordable and suitable eldercare help for a family member or close friend.  This can be even more difficult if there is memory loss or disability, if family members have limited resources, or if those involved live far apart.

This website is part of a caregiver support project started in January 2015 by a group of volunteers who are members of the Atlanta Center of Drepung Loseling Monastery (DLM).  The aim of is to provide members, staff, and friends of DLM with current information on key aging and eldercare resources.  The current website features resources in the metro-Atlanta area (where the North American headquarters of the Monastery, its Center, and many of its members are based), but most resources are also applicable to those living elsewhere.

Some resources have content based on Buddhist spiritual principles or practices, including some of the books and audiovisuals.  However, most items are secular in nature and should be useful to persons of all faiths.
