I am smack in the middle of this with my parents in Seattle, driving back and forth several times a month. One idea I will share is this. When they were moving out of our family home after 35+ years, I made them a book. I used Blurb, an online photo book publisher, but there are all sorts of services. I scanned family photos that pertained to events and things that happened in the house. It's a book that only the family understands! It's funny that each family member tells a different story about the same photo. Except for a letter to my parents at the beginning of the book, the book is all photos. They aren't all artistic, but each has a story. They are now in a retirement home and they have the book on their coffee table in their new living room. They loved it and I am in the process of ordering a copy of the book for each sibling and grandchild for their birthdays this year. I can change the letter at the beginning for each one. They are about $60/each.
