Remember, an expensive nursing home isn't a guarantee that your parent .

Remember, an expensive nursing home isn't a guarantee that your parent will get loving, devoted care, just as a run-down exterior doesn't always mean shabby care. Appearance is an important clue to what kind of service is provided, but the quality of care comes from the people who work in the facility - the philosophy of the administrators and the devotion of the staff. Assisting and caring for aging parents equals the challenge of raising children and sometimes extends for as many years. Another companion book to this one, also by Virginia Morris is a book called "Talking About Death" is an invaluable in depth look at end of life issues. 15 people found this helpful.

A "must-have" guide for anyone caring and providing for an elderly loved one. A definitive book providing the answers to numerous perplexing problems such as: how to locate specialists; how does managed care affect your choices; what is the field of "elder law"; what are symptoms of disease in the elderly; what is dementia; what is long distance care-giving; how to tell "good" from "bad" facilities; and much more.

This is an extremely valuable reference book for anyone caring for an aging loved one or wanting to prepare mentally, emotionally and financially for caring for anyone elderly. I purchased it in 2002 and read it. My father passed away in 2012. From 2004 until Jan. 2012, I was responsible for caring for my father, who I was able to move to a wonderful "Community Living" facility, and, at the end, to an affiliated hospice. This book gives you a good idea of what you have to think about, and how to think about it; how to approach caregiving and how to take care of yourself, as the whole journey is intense. Nancy Wexler, the author, covers many aspects and indicates the areas you have to become knowledgeable about. She gives excellent advice on how to handle very personal, critical situations. The framework she provides and the elder care landscape she describes were helpful throughout the decade I navigated with my father. While I did hire a geriatric care manager for several months (my parent was across the country from me and was in extended crisis for those months), the care manager was not helpful - at least partially because my very mentally competent parent would not cooperate with her. However, I could see that there are times that a geriatric care manager would be essential - especially in crises and when the parent is not mentally competent. Whether or not you want to, or can afford to, hire a geriatric care manager is really not the question, nor did I ever sense that it was the purpose of Ms. Wexler's book. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to give themselves valuable preparation for their parents/elderly loved one's last journey - that you will take together in many ways. Might as well make it as richly meaningful and beautiful as it can be, while minimizing the difficulty of some of the necessary transitions.

This is the most useful, warm, and accurate book I've read on the painful subject of caring for your loved one (spouse, relative, friend) who is losing their unique humanity to Alzheimer's. It is not cold and clinical, but touches the heart with joyfulness, deep understanding, and compassion. Most of all, it details, point-by-point, the signs of Alzheimer's and the emotionally difficult steps necessary to care for such individuals. It is not a "New Age" feel-good book full of rambling cute stories, but a highly readable book that focuses on specific and reality. The author has a lifetime of professional experience and credentials, and is supported by countless favorable reviews by other eminent professionals in all areas of expertise. This is THE book for average people and even for other professionals who want to understand and deal with one of the realities of growing old. It doesn't offer fantasies or pie-in-the sky cures, but it does offer hope that both you and your loved one can go on living the most "quality" life possible. I brought the book with me to Asia and Europe, and despite the huge differences in cultures, it was very well-received and considered extremely useful by the suffering children of Alzheimer's patients.
