About this blog: I developed a special interest in helping seniors with their challenges and transitions when my dad had a stroke and I helped him through all the various stages of downsizing, packing, moving and finding an assisted living community. I live in Palo Alto with my wife and we have three grown children, one still in college. I have been in the Bay Area since 1977 (except for seven years in Newton MA — just missed all that snow too much.) I've worked in sales and marketing in retirement communities for seven years, and have hired and managed home care workers for family members, and have a pretty good idea of how aging in place, or shopping for and selecting the right retirement community works. I now run my own business, Palo Alto Senior Living, providing real estate and senior transition services. This blog is designed to share my experiences, insight and knowledge with seniors and their baby boomer kids and provide useful information to help develop a roadmap for smooth transitions or aging in place. I welcome readers to share their experiences, both good and not-so-good, in the hope that we all can benefit from each other. (Hide)

As a followup to a recent post about the Katz's Corner radio call-in show out of NYC (very gratified to see that it was of interest to nearly 20,000 readers), I was on the East Coast last Sunday and finally realized my "dream" of calling into the show at 7am EST. Lo and behold, I was his first caller. I gave him some background details (PSA tests etc.) He gave me some valuable advice about having a prostate MRI which can give the doctor a better picture of what's going on. For anyone who has not tuned into the show via podcast, I highly recommend it. He seems to be at the leading edge of prostate and men's health in general and brings in great guest doctors. I especially like the more holistic approach, starting with diet and nutrition, supplements that he has seen benefits from in his practive, and then various options on surgery and proceedures aimed at minimizing side effects.
