Reviews - What do customers think about Caring for Your Parents, 3-cd set: The Complete AARP Guide?

Good reference  Jan 28, 2008
I bought multiple books of this type and found only two really helpful - this one and "The Eldercare Handbook: Difficult Choices, Compassionate Solutions" By: Stella Henry. Both are good references I turned to again and again. A good buy.
Inspiring and Full of Practical Tips  Jul 21, 2006
This book is full of helpful tips and inspiring, real life stories for anyone caring for an elderly parent. A useful and uplifting book. I am a legal aid hotline attorney and own a medical supply business. I both capacities, I frequently talk with seniors and their children who are caring for them. I and recommending this book to them.
Caring for Parents by Delehanty and Ginzler  Jun 26, 2006
This book is an excellent reference for adults with older parents
progressively requiring more care from their children and other
care-providers. Generally, the family provides up to 80% of care
for the elderly. In my experience, this is true due to the high
cost of nursing facilities and the personalized care many older
people prefer. The authors mention that advocacy for the elderly
requires strong organizational skills. This is the understatement
of the year. Keep medical records, descriptions of key health
issues, physician rosters and any materials which will assist
you in determining what level of care parents require.
Most states allow physicians and providers to discard records
after 6 or more years. With this data in hand, create a home
medical tracking system for physicians, medications, physical
therapy regimentation, diet etc.

The book lists some classic sayings by noted personalities. i.e.

- "Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born
at 80 and gradually age to 18. " Mark Twain

- "Raise children for old age as you store grain against famine."
Chinese Proverb

This book would be invaluable to children of old age parents
about to take on the role of caregiver or partial caregiver.
It lists some classic considerations many of us overlook in the
painful yet rewarding process of caring for elderly parents in
the twilight of life.
