National Lutheran Communities & Services’ (NLCS) President and CEO Larry Bradshaw knows first-hand the challenges adult children face in providing care for aging loved ones. As an only child, he became the point person for his mother’s care after a series of medical issues.
“I have a new appreciation for the role adult children play in helping their aging loved one,” Bradshaw says. “The situation with my mom made it very personal, and made me realize how important resources like NLCS are in supporting this process.”
NLCS’ mission is to honor, inspire and support choice and opportunity in service to seniors.
“As a mission-driven not-for-profit, we want to inform seniors and their families about their options, and be a resource so they can make an educated decision,” Bradshaw says. “To help navigate the landscape of information, we’ve created a website of tools and tips for adult children searching called www.helpingyourparents.org.”
