Book Description

"Who Will Take Care of Mom?" is a must-read for anyone who expects they will have to provide or coordinate long-term care for a parent, disabled or terminally ill relative.
This life-changing experience happened to Cynthia Wilson when she was 34, single and poised to enter her peak earning years. Odds are that you or someone you know will have to take care of a parent sooner than expected because people are living longer, but not necessarily healthier.
The trend is threatening America's economic prosperity and consuming individual wealth because Americans are spending more of their tax dollars, personal savings and time away from work on elder care.
In "Who Will Take Care of Mom, A Guide for Family-Managed Senior Care," Cynthia examines the political debate surrounding senior care, along with some economic and employee trends that are affecting elder care, family life and the work place in America. She explains why family-managed care is the better solution for families and shows caregivers how to implement a family-managed care plan that provides safe, loving care for a relative, without forfeiting the family's wealth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A loving approach to a difficult subject we all face August 22, 2012
"Who Will Take Care of Mom?" does a good job of addressing the personal dilemmas families face surrounding senior care, then offers a very practical discussion about the available choices. I like the rather direct and far reaching opinion (which I share) about the direction elder care needs to take given the political agenda being shoved down our throats. I think Cynthia's analysis of what needs to happen was right on target." -

5.0 out of 5 stars Things to consider. March 24, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Aging and knowing what a parent "wants" and what to do about it all and how to assist are all very sensitive subjects. I purchased this book for a parent who can still make those decisions/choices/preferences known but I read the book before I gave it. I appreciate the Author sharing life experience, with current (and some future) insight on what the law (varies from state to state) says, the decision making process and the "care-giving" experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who wil take care of mom? October 19, 2012
By scotty
The book was definitely a good read. It gave insight into the needs of the elderly and handicap. Not only was it thought provoking it provided me with an opportunity about my own elderly mother.

More About the Author

Cynthia Wilson grew up in New York City. Her love or learning and writing led her to pursue a career as a journalist and live in several cities before settling in the Midwest. It was when she moved to St. Louis, Missouri that Cynthia first began taking care of her mother at home. That was in 1999, when Cynthia was 35 and single. Now married with a preteen child, Cynthia's mother continues to live with her and her family in Kansas.
Cynthia first began writing about the funnier aspects of her elder care experiences in her blog, Mother's Keeper. Convinced that
economic and political trends will lead most adult children to play a more active role in managing their parent's long term care, Cynthia later published Who Will Take Care of Mom? A Guide for Family-Managed Senior Care in August 2012.
As an elder care advocate Cynthia's goal is to help families set long term care and end of life goals, identify and retain reliable caregivers and avoid the financial traps that could consume their wealth and leave them with financially crippling health care debt.
