Easy read and very informative. Haven been thought many of the scenarios Tom describes in this book with my family members, I only wish I had read this beforehand. I particularly liked the section on military benefits.

Thank you Thomas! Last year we went through this with my husband's mother. Such a confusing and difficult time. I could really relate to the emergency room and hospital experience chapters.
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.

My initial reaction upon reading How to Pay for Long Term Care without going Broke is WOW! We are going through so much in trying to care for our elderly dad in a nursing home. He has terminal cancer. We tried to care for him at my moms house but her alzheimers' and the level of care he needs caused that not to work. At the nursing home people have stolen clothes we have bought him and food. He hates the food there so we gift him with homemade food we bring to him when we visit. I only wish I had this book before my dad got sick. It would have helped us immensely. He is a veteran and there is no living will, trust, power of attorney... nothing. This book is very complete. It covers everything you need to so to take care of an elder without ".losing your shirt". I highly recommend it!

As someone who has looked after an aged person in my home before before I can tell you how useful this book will be to you if you are in, or facing, that situation yourself. You'll have a pile of questions and unfortunately many of those will be based around how to pay for the care. Thomas' book is a well-rounded review of just what you need to know about the financing of elderly care, what the factors are, where to find the funds, where to ask, what you are entitled to and more. Written in an easy-going and sympathetic style it'll be a really good resource if you need quick answers to many questions. Recommended.

The author has done an outstanding job of delving into the minute details of caring for the elderly. Wonderful examples of case studies are presented as well as a huge amount of resources. I'm happy to have found this guide for helping those in my own family that will need this type of care. Most of us will face this situation at one point or another. Now you'll have all the information you'll need to make a wiser choice for your loved one.

As one with an aging parent and one who just passed away, I wish I would have had this resource a couple of years ago. This concise guide with resource listings and examples in every chapter is going to be the first place I go to for many of those tough life decisions that will come up in discussions about care for the family in the near future.
Glad I read it and it will be an ongoing reference guide for us.
