About the Author
Nan McAdam has had a prestigious career in both agricultural and in the financial sales arena. She has led sales teams for over 20 years. She has not only been involved in individual sales, but the training, coaching and leading of other sales people. In the early 1990's another avenue opened up for her to dedicate herself. Her parents were growing older and with that came health issues for them. She knew it was time to help them with their old age challenges any way she could. It was time to embrace being a caregiver. Little did she know it would be one of the most challenge careers of her life. She has since been helping 5 other loved ones navigate the experience of old age. Nan is an author of two blogs. She has been a fan of self improvement for many years and has passed her knowledge of leadership, parenting, and how to live a more enriched life in her blog: http://www.selfimprovementinformation.com. She is, also, the author of an elder care blog: http:www.caring4youragingseniorcitizen.com. When Nan isn't care giving or writing, she is spending time with her family. She has been married to the same wonderful man for 35 years and has 3 children and two grandchildren. She makes her home in the Midwest where she lives with her husband and 3 furry four legged family members.

I was pleased to read the helpful insights on the ways a person can get outside help to get some time away from the responsibilities and the daily stress of care giving. The book was filled with all kinds of helpful things.
My mother lived with us until she died at age 92. She and I felt very fortunate that her mind was always sharp. It was her body that wore out and she passed away. I wished I had read this book when she was living. The bathing and moving her was very difficult.
I am now in my twilight years and my wonderful family is here for me. I'm passing the book on to them. I am sure Mrs. McAdam's book will help them to survive my old age.
Most of all this is a sincere recount offered by someone who really cares and want to help others because she places a great value on the well being of her loved ones. Well done!
What makes this book very special is I know that Nan McAdam lived this story and what she went through was not easy. I thank her for sharing her true experiences.
I bought this book for my sister which lives with my 86 year old mother, At this time my mother is very able to take care of herself, as she still drives to volunteering a few hours each week to a local hospital in Florida. My thinking was my I would prepare my sister if this day if it ever came.
I was wrong to think that my 57 year old sister would even read it. The thing that surprised me was my mother read the book and in my mothers own words after she read Surviving the Stress was, she was able to see a few things that was happening in her own life and she was able to help my sister by changing a few things to make life easier in my sisters life. Like when sister says, Danny, she's driving me crazy.
My review isn't your normal review and hopefully my sisters and I won't ever have to go through what Nan McAdam went through. But if we do, we have a very good source to refer to. Surviving the STRESS of Your Parents' Old Age...
On the other hand, my mother has been helping a few of her friends by telling their children the things she now knows.
So from my sister, my mother and myself we suggest the book to anyone that has a parent approaching an elderly age.
