From the Publisher

At a time when many mature adults are thinking about smelling the roses, they are increasingly and ironically faced with the most difficult time of their lives. Instead of being able to focus on living out their own dream retirement, tens of millions of Americans are increasingly confronted with the prospect of setting aside their plans as they take care of their aging parents. The demands on what has been described as the "sandwich generation" are at once enormous, relentless and frequently overwhelming. The current books on parent care contain excellent information on what to do for aging parents, but limited practical guidance on how to survive emotionally as adult children of aging parents. The issues are complex, but amazingly simple to deal with when the issues are clearly defined and solutions clearly outlined. Coping In New Territory offers the adult child of aging parents survival skills that can save their sanity. Suzanne Roberts has been described by many as the Sandwich Generation's Guardian Angel. Her book is a welcome addition to the writings in this field. Practical topics such as setting boundaries, control issues, power struggles, money manipulations, falling into old behavior patterns with siblings, guilt and much much more can be found in this ground breaking book. Ms. Roberts writes with honesty, warmth and humor. This is a book that can sharpen the coping skills of any reader who picks it up. Though the audience is adult children of aging parents, the wisdom imparted is of universal value.

This book saved my family. I read it, then got copies for my four siblings. When we came home to meet with my parents, we were all in agreement about how to support them, but keep them safe. Every chapter talked to us. It was as though Suzanne had been one of our family describing what we had all experienced. Thank heaven for this book. Our parents are accepting in home care and we can breathe easily about their safety.

Suzanne has written an insightful and most helpful book that brought so many things to light for me in seeing and aiding mom as she progressed with serious dementia and let me be at peace with her need to be out of her home and well cared for with people around her all day long. I refer to this book on a continual basis and always find it a wonderful resource. Thank you, Suzanne.

Format: Paperback
This book helped put difficult family dynamics in perspective and gave good suggestions on how to work through some of them. The stress related with trying to help elderly parents can be overwhelming, and this book gave great insight on how and when to help, and when to back off. I have used many of the suggestions in relating to my parents as well as my siblings.
