Strategies for Independent Aging is owned and operated by Terry Lynch. Terry specializes in helping older people remain as self-reliant and involved in community life as possible, and helping family caregivers maintain the quality of their own lives.

In his book But I Don't Wan't Eldercare, Terry Lynch draws on extraordinary personal experience from his work with the White House Conference on Individuals with Disabilities to a decade as his motherís caregiver. While he assisted other families, Terry helped his mother remain at home in spite of significant medical problems and a life-changing memory disorder.

Through this illuminating personal experience and his work with other families, Terry learned that we have more control over the quality of our lives as we age than we realize, and how we can maintain this control.
