Review

"The Boomer's Guide to Aging Parents" is the most comprehensive, forthright, and heartfelt resource guide for families with an aging elder.  I highly recommend that you keep this book at hand to help you traverse the challenging path with your elders. This is the only book for caregivers that contains deep and broad expertise on legal issues, which you will want to know. You'll find practical step-by-step expertise on legal  and health concerns, that can help you feel at ease in the short term and the long term, at a time when you need it most.   The time of your parents' aging is poignant and delicate.  "The Boomer's Guide to Aging Parents" will help you find your way with clear road markers, like a beacon in the night. Carolyn is a recognized expert who has a rare and unique combination of deep and broad expertise as an astute attorney and wise nurse.  She is a treasure, and a rare find.  You'll want to keep her book on your night stand.   Frannie Field, M.S., MFT, Author --Frannie Field, M.S., MFT, Author

This book is for those who are finding themselves in a place they may have never expected to be: responsible wholly, or in part for the care and or welfare of their parents. The Baby Boomer generation is running head-on into another milepost of life: aging parents.Many have had only superficial contact with the day-to-day realities of becoming caregivers to adults. Many have been entitled. And many have been fortunate in finding great careers. Now, faced with the conundrum of reaching retirement in a suddenly unreliable economic environment, co-incidentally with their own parents, Boomers have a new set of issues with their parents. Carolyn Rosenblatt's book is informative and supportive in helping with decision-making that is too often difficult. Practical advice will answer questions and direct the search for optimal solutions. Carolyn's personal and professional background are exceptional credentials for providing this guide to present and future caregivers. As a professional in Healthcare and an advocate for safe, meaningful and dignified care for our Elders, I recommend this book with confidence. The format of the book is convenient, offering topic choices in individual books so that the reader can access specific subjects, and is available in Kindle. --Donna N. Berry, R.N.

She began working as a nurse in acute hospitals, nursing homes, and then moved to community health nursing, both in Los Angeles County and in San Francisco. She visited thousands of geriatric patients and other patients at home, caring for those with chronic, debilitating illness, injuries, and physical and emotional problems associated with aging.She worked her way through law school as a nurse, and upon passing the Bar Exam in 1978, moved into an attorney position in a San Francisco law firm, where she began doing litigation and trial work.

Format: Paperback
This book is superb! Carolyn Rosenblatt has created an excellent road map that is a wonderful resource for the Baby Boomer in caring for an aging parent or loved one. Boomers are facing a new challenge of dealing with aging parents and there are TONS of things to figure out from Medicare, to power of attorney, in home care to choosing a nursing home. An excellent chapter devoted to ways to approach the very sensitive issue of driving helps you to ease into a discussion that is probably inevitable. Carolyn offers practical advise on dealing with family conflicts, to how to find a good lawyer, to standing up in the healthcare system for your loved one to tips on handling your loved one's financial affairs.
I found this book to be invaluable and an insightful comprehensive guide for this Baby Boomer to aid me in my caring for an aging loved one.

This is a really practical step-by-step guide for family members or friends who are caring for their aging loved-ones. It takes you through all the problems - from stopping driving to advocating for your parent when they are hospitalized. Carolyn Rosenblatt brings both her legal knowledge (she was a litigator for many years before finding her soul in aging) and her nursing background to provide a truly unique persepective.

I could not recommend this more highly!
