Channel 28's recent "Frontline" report on caring for elderly parents was a pertinent, realistic look at an ever-present dilemma. Those of us with elderly parents who are both physically sound and mentally alert can indeed consider ourselves fortunate. Those who carry the burden of responsibility for their ailing relatives deserve our respect and admiration.
