Boom Baby Boomer is a website designed to inspire and inform baby boomers but we certainly welcome everyone! It contains well-researched articles you can easily read and understand in ten minutes or less. There are also real-life experiences we can all learn from and videos specifically targeted to families coping with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

We hope you will make this website your first stop when looking for answers or inspiration.
