Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The new, greatly revised and expanded edition of a hefty guidebook to eldercare originally published in 1995 is easy to read because Morris divides it into manageable sections. Worried about people taking advantage of your parents? Turn to a chapter titled, “What You Need to Know about Fraud.” Confused by legal issues, such as estate-tax rules? Morris gives easy-to-understand explanations of complicated-sounding terms, such as irrevocable life insurance trust. She also clearly and concisely spells out Medicare Part A and Part B—really! And she explains the stages of Alzheimer’s in less than two pages. Charts help convey such essential information as housing options. A funeral checklist is full of reminders, such as, “Find out if your parent owns a plot.” The chapter “You’re Next” nudges caregivers to manage their own affairs, too. Twenty-five pages listing useful organizations (offering help with everything from driving to pension rights) and 18 pages of forms (for medical contacts, medications, end-of-life wishes, caregiver contacts) conclude this thorough and invaluable how-to. --Karen Springen

Review

"A compassionate guide of encyclopedic proportion."
The Washington Post



“Indispensable!”

― AARP



"This guide, aimed at the "Sandwich Generation," provides a road map to assist adult children in caring for their aging parents. Combining personal experience with expertise in healthcare and social and political issues, Morris has produced a thoroughly researched, well-organized, and comprehensive manual. Chapters follow in logical progression, yet they can stand alone and be read on an "as-needed" basis. The topics covered include the concrete, practical areas such as home care, finances, nursing homes/hospitals, legal issues, and medical/safety concerns as well as the psychosocial areas of handling emotions, dealing with death and dying, sibling conflicts, and spiritual needs. In her discussions, Morris adds useful details such as a suggested list of things to pack for the hospital. Support for the caregiver as well as to the elderly person is covered. Sprinkled throughout the text are agencies, phone numbers, and other reference information."


"A must-read … [Morris] thoroughly addresses the subject, covering most topics imaginable from standards such as exercise and healthy diet to uncomfortable ones such as STDs, Alzheimer's, and delusions and hallucinations.… Her frank approach manages to be both compassionate and direct making the most awkward or devastating topics manageable."
