Format: Paperback
This book is a first rate essential one to have if one has an aging parent or, indeed, is fast becoming one. I can't think of anything they missed or glossed over. And it is very well written to boot!

Format: Paperback
I bought the book as a reference text, but became engrossed in the book. It is much more substantive than anything else I have seen on the market. I can't recommend it enough to anyone who is an Adult Child with Aging parents.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent read for those dealing with aging parents, regardless whether it's going well or not. Lots of great insights into the aging process and the mental and emotional issues involved as well, for all parties involved.
Lots of excellent advice and information about organizations, etc., that can provide help and support for your family and your parents.
It would be a good read even if your parents are only in their 50s or 60s, to help prepare you for what's coming. But it pretty much a "must read" for those whose parents are in their 70s or older.
