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

And throughout the book, the caregiver is encouraged to take care of themselves, to not get discouraged, to guard against the depression and anxiety that all of this causes. It is a serious thing to care for a parents and it is not easy.
The lovely 'circle of life' is a nice idea, but in reality---yes, they did care for us as babies and now they need our help---but they aren't babies and they don't want to have to need help at all.
They just want their life to go on as before, with their independence and autonomy.
So we must anticipate their needs, be there to help, and recognize when we need to get outside help, because we just cannot do it all, and maintain our own lives, jobs and families as well as theirs.
This book was an invaluable tool and resource for me.
It's easy to read, look up just the topic you need at the time, in the table of contents or index, ---it does not require that you read it from cover to cover to get a lot out of it.
If you don't know where to start with figuring out how to care for your aging parents, this is a good book to use to begin the journey.
