Just What I Needed! Oct 23, 2006
I wish I had found this book when the journey with my father had just started instead of towards the end. Covers all concerns...freed me from much guilt...put things into perspective for me , which is hard to do when you feel like you are in the middle of a whirlwind! READ THIS BOOK & give it to all of those you love. It will make such a difference!
Everyone with aging parents should read this book!!!! Jul 25, 2006
Excellent book! I wished I would have known about this book 5 years ago. It does a great job of telling you what to expect in the future and how you can cope with today. I am sure I will return to this book time and time again. Although written from the view of a Christian, its not "preachie". It gives very practical advice. It does give scripture references and the talks about the power of prayer, but I think even non-Christian would benefit from this book.
Practical, overflowing with emphathy & well written May 23, 2005
I am helping to care for my grandmother and I stumbled upon this book 'by chance'. I am a quarter way through and this looks like a gem of a book.
I found the insights and advice consistent with how my gran is responding in her present state of health, her day-to-day needs, and how the family is dealing with the situation (many a times dysfunctionally).
It is practical, overflowing with emphathy and speaks from a person who has gone through the process herself - a very accessible book which addresses the needs of both caregivers and aging parents. Despite the book being written some time ago, it challenged my own misguided notions about old people.
Certainly very highly recommended for anyone who is going into or are in a situation where they are caring for an aging person. Often, one may reach a place where one is not sure "what to do next". This book will definitely help.
Comprehensive, informative reading. Jul 31, 2000
When I learned that my father would possibly be moving to a skilled care nursing home, I looked around for material regarding caring for the elderly from a Christian perspective. This book was very helpful. The author has personally experienced care-giving for both of her parents. She gives insight from all perspectives such as, health care, siblings, government support, estates, living wills, support groups and taking care of yourself. Each chapter has a Biblical scripture theme. The book would be inspiring and informative to those who are overwelmed with all the issues of taking care of elderly parents. I found the book to especially benefit me since I am the daughter who doesn't live in the same town as my father so the burden of care-giving falls on my sister. This book gave me many ideas on how I can support her. I was so impressed with the information in the book that I purchased the book for my sister.
