As someone who has worked professionally in the arena of adult social care for over 25 years and more recently had to deal with the need for care for a close relative, this book is a timely and very useful reminder of the do's and don'ts in dealing with increasing frailty and the need for a care home. This book is extremely helpful in guiding people through what can seem a maze of bureaucracy, at the same time not forgetting the personal aspects., Simon Morris, former CEO of Jewish Care
There has never been a more important time for a clear and concise guide like this - the care system can be a confusing (and sometimes perilous) maze, and families need to be well prepared and know all their options if they are going to make the right decisions for their loved ones., Tony Watts, Director EngAgeNet

A compassionate and well-researched 'bible' for anyone seeking advice on supporting their elderly friends or family members., Jill Adams, On The Shelf Books

What an absolute gem of a book this is. I will certainly be keeping it on hand to dip into from time to time., Lynn Brown, Books in My Opinion
I wish I could share this book with everyone - it is helpful for anyone facing ill health of themselves, their friends and families., Maureen Moyes, Love Books Group

This is an extremely well written, comprehensive manual. It covers a vast range of topics that contain useful and relevant information whatever your question. The language is straight forward and easily understood with no "jargon". The ideas are excellent for helping with , or to helping you to prepare for, dealing with your elderly relatives.
There is no doubt that the more education, relevant information and preparation we have the more able we are able to provide this care.
This book is an excellent resource for those involved in caring for the elderly and to help navigate the minefield of elderly care.
At last, a guide to help with care homes, with financial planning, with arranging a Power of Attorney. Stone clearly brings her own personal experience to this book, but her wealth of knowledge in the field is impressive, and the depth of research evident. I wish I had been able to rely on this guide a decade ago. Put this on your bookshelf now. You will use it.
It should be recommended by all GPs to their patients and families.
