    Active Seniors in Transition has been designed for the “sandwich generation” - those with children, and also have, or will have, aging parents facing many of the transition issues, challenges and joys that come with increased longevity. For example, issues like driving, dealing with the loss of a spouse, deciding whether or not to relocate where the grand kids are, and many more key issues facing our aging population. We provide high-quality information, tools, resources, chat, and guidance to help you manage your role as the "sandwich" provider both as a parent and care taker for your parent or elders. Our web site gives you timely, cutting edge, entertaining and useful content focused on one goal: helping you help your parents age gracefully while getting the most out of life.
