Jane Gross is an experienced and well-regarded reporter at the New York Times. A while ago she began a blog entitled The New Old Age that explores the unprecedented intergenerational challenge brought on by the demographics of our ageing society.

In her blog, Jane shares the stories of readers, the advice of professionals, and the wisdom gleaned from her own experience caring for her late mother in her waning years.

Her postings are well worth reading – and sharing with your friends and colleagues.
