Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise for Joan Breitung's The Eldercare Sourcebook:

"The Eldercare Sourcebook by Joan Breitung is an important, well-written, and extremely helpful resource for aging individuals and their families."
--Martin I. Surks, M.D., Program Director, Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine

"...A splendid source of timely and helpful information in a very readable format. [The Eldercare Sourcebook] will appeal to the professional care giver as well as the many in the "sandwich generation" who are coping with their parents as they grow older."
--Sister Mary Caritas, S.P., Chair, Continuum of Care and Long Term/Aging Services Standing Committee, Catholic Health Association

Thanks to medical advances and healthier lifestyles, more people are living longer than ever before. As a result, many baby boomers are "sandwiched" between two generations--their children and their parents. Like others in this situation, you may have a good grasp of child care, but you suddenly find yourself facing the stressful prospect of caring for an aging parent, whose special needs you know nothing about.

The Eldercare Sourcebook will help you resolve this difficult situation. Using clear language, this comprehensive resource explains how to tend to the nutritional, medical, and mental-health needs of an elderly loved one. A compassionate guide, it offers advice on how best to plan for long-term care, whether at home or in a structured facility.
