The holidays are often the only time of year when the extended family gets together, and those occasions offer you and your siblings an opportunity to check on your parents well-being and discuss your observations together.

What we didn’t check, however, was the rating of the noise level, which many reviewers now indicate with “noise bomb” icons.

Imagine having just the meals you want, prepared just the way you like, without having to do any of the shopping, cooking, or clean-up.  Now, imagine having all this in the convenience of your own home. Sounds too good to be true?  It's not.
