Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* Guidance on how to talk with parents about the future, and to be prepared for what may lie ahead * Useful personal charts, checklists, surveys * Self-Help Book of the Year (ForeWord Magazine) * Author a guest twice on Today show Written from the perspective of a mental health professional, an educator, and an adult child of aging parents, this book is full of down-to-earth advice that considers all sides. Easy to read, As Parents Age contains anecdotes and relevant facts about aging as well as self-help guidance for people who parents are starting to show or are well into showing their old age. With checklists and self-inventories, and with lots of attention to the emotional responses of family members, As Parents Age provides gently focused, practical guidance for the reader seeking help at a very difficult time. A Booklist review said: " This informative guide to many of the biological, psychological, economic, medical, legal, and personal issues involved in caring for older parents (or friends) is timely and enlightening."
