Intimate, hugely informative, and a gripping read…
With great insight and empathy, Edwards, Retired Mayo Clinic Eldercare Specialist, shares his sage advice on taking care of older parents and how to handle everything that goes along with the dramatic life transition. Covering everything from how to initiate a conversation with your parents about the situation to managing finances and healthcare, and navigating serious physical illness to dementia, depression, and drinking, Edwards educates readers about how to make informed decisions about elder care. He frequently draws from the experience of adult children, who have journeyed with their parents through their later years and offers intelligent advice on handling the onset of old age with understanding and sensitivity. Edwards’s real-life examples with reassuring personal testimonies, fluid narrative, and accessible, crisp prose brings a fresh perspective to the elder care handbook catalogue. Informative and impassioned, this is an excellent resource for adult children.
