-Jane Gross, New York Times
"Dr. Kane is not just one of the world's foremost authorities in geriatric medicine and long-term care, he is also a passionate advocate for the ill-met needs of people facing the real and difficult realities of an aging society...This book combines a kind of pilot's check list for families entering unchartered territory, but it also steers them with a steady hand toward a place of dignity, and what comforts the world allows in their time of need."
-Ted C. Fishman, journalist (National Geographic, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and others)
"No one in America knows more about aging than Dr. Robert Kane-not only the scientific underpinnings of what causes it and how to responsibly stave it off-but more importantly, how to address its inevitability. This book will come as indispensble manual for anyone with a parent or grandparent approaching the Act III in life."
-Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Everything from how to be an advocate, how to not take away all independence for the loved one, insurance options, legal necessities, and even a 9 question "test" to see if you would make a good caregiver.
This should be required reading for anyone facing this situation.
I am an elder law attorney. My clients and their families ask me the tough questions every day. I do not always
have an answer for them but now I have a place to send them. They can now get easy to understand guidance
on how to work with the hospital, choices in long term care, the importance of developing patience...
It is a really valuable book. It will be a comfort knowing that answers are close at hand.
Tom Olofsson, J.D.
Pls.let Dr. Robert L. Kane, author, know how much a book like this was needed, and he is probably saving some lives. I thank God I saw it.
