What I really love about this book is the way it is written with a caring but highly practical voice. Even the lists of things you should take to the hospital. It is all there. I also found the case studies very interesting and they really helped me to understand what to do in different circumstances.
My only wish is that I would have read this book before putting our own personal experience with long term care. We went in blind and didn't always make the right decisions, actually, we made very few decisions and were basically told what to do (this wasn't always in the best interests of the patient). However, the good news is that we are now totally prepared for the next experience. If you have elderly parents or someone in the family who is sick, do yourself a favor and prepare yourself for the maze of decisions that you'll have to face, by reading this book.
Glad I read it and it will be an ongoing reference guide for us.
