Extremely Relevant Aug 25, 2008
Boomers on the Edge by Terry Hargrave is much needed in today's culture for those in midlife. Baby Boomers are now being called "The Sandwich Generation" because we are often sandwiched in between our aging parents and our children, having to care for both. This book gives practical advice for those who are facing this and other similar situations. It also faces financial issues that Boomers will be facing due to our nation's rising cost of living.
The book is broken down into three sections:
~The Challenge of Caregiving ~The Challenge of Adult Children ~The Challenge of Retirement
This is a must read for anyone who will be facing caring for elderly parents in their near future. The section on how to parent and grandparent at the same time is also excellent. I highly recommend this. Kudos to Terry Hargrave for writing such a timely book!
