About the Author:

Suzanne’s experience with eldercare came the hard way – by doing it.

Suzanne is in the second decade of eldercare with an aging parent and in-laws. She understands that eldercare can be overwhelming, frustrating and stressful. She knows you need the relief of practical tips – but that a good laugh helps too.

Suzanne uses her business background and her on-the-ground experience to deliver a unique organized approach to the stressful scenarios in eldercare. Her guidance doesn’t come in dry, boring prose; it comes wrapped in tongue-in-cheek humor, making it easier to read and remember. She guides you toward actionable steps and away from the shoot-from-the-hip responses in eldercare that can heap on the stress but not help solve the problem at hand.

Suzanne has spent her 20-year corporate career in marketing and customer service, leading and training teams at The Coca-Cola Company, Bueno Foods, and Ogilvy & Mather as well as her own consulting firm, Parkin & Blankenship.

Suzanne has used her background in business and customer service to develop tools, identify resources, and show how effective advocacy can make a difference in eldercare. She brings some sanity to an otherwise randomly arriving responsibility.

From Texas originally, Suzanne now calls Colorado home. She believes in advocacy, the importance of family, and the need for balance in life. Humor is her favorite resource.

Suzanne writes a weekly blog on her website as The Eldercare Navigator. Sign up to receive her emails, tips and blog at
