I was looking for a guide book that would help me understand the aging processes that my elderly Mother may be experiencing and then hints on how best to respond as an adult child. This was not what this book delivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars the better prepared you will be for the inevitable 5 Aug. 2015
By 50s LabRat - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the first version 35 years ago, when my parents were the aging ones. I was lazy & put off reading it until "someday." Big mistake. Now I AM the "aging parent", & I finally got around to reading it, & I WISH I had read it 35 years ago, it would have made both my life AND my parents MUCH EASIER. It is extremely thorough in describing the social, financial & family issues involved in caring for elderly relatives, usually (but not always) parents. It is not a question of IF you will have these concerns in the future (whether for your parents or yourself), but WHEN, so the sooner you read this (& probably some others after you find what some of the major issues are), the better prepared you will be for the inevitable. I bought multiple copies for our children, in hopes they will learn from my experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, Great Service from seller 17 Jun. 2011
By Carl E. Taylor - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent read for those dealing with aging parents, regardless whether it's going well or not. Lots of great insights into the aging process and the mental and emotional issues involved as well, for all parties involved.
Lots of excellent advice and information about organizations, etc., that can provide help and support for your family and your parents.
It would be a good read even if your parents are only in their 50s or 60s, to help prepare you for what's coming. But it pretty much a "must read" for those whose parents are in their 70s or older.

4.0 out of 5 stars Want to feel young again? 18 Jan. 2009
By Marcus Aurelius - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want to feel young, go out and do something you've been wanting to do for yourself. Want to feel responsible, pick this up. Lots of tips about what you're going to do to keep on top of matters as the folks become like you will right behind them. Warning: By looking at this book on amazon, you'll end up with the most sobering home page suggestions. Read the book if you need to, but then go find a cd or dvd for yourself.
