By Denise Logeland and SCAN Foundation

What are you looking for when you seek a new home for your aging parents?

Bringing their parents closer to their daughters' homes for convenience wasn’t the answer, either.  Gurwitch tells how they figured out what mattered most in this “In My Humble Opinion” segment from PBS NewsHour.
