Parenting Your Parents
When our parents reach a certain age and have difficulty coping, we find ourselves wondering how to provide them with the kind of love, care, support, and attention they need just as they have done for us all our lives. Parenting Your Parents shows, through 20 case studies and the personal experiences of the authors, that you are not alone and offers crucial advice to help you along this difficult but rewarding journey. The book also offers a comprehensive planner to guide and collect information and documentation that will be critical for the proper care of your parents.
"... is a most welcome reference book for adult children of elderly parents who are seeking advice from the experts into whose hands they see their parents' health care ever-increasingly entrusted ... I highly recommend Parenting Your Parent for adult children dealing with elderly parents and for their own children who will surely face the challenges their parents are facing now."
"Bart Mindszenthry and Dr. Michael Gordon are to be commended on writing an accessible and extremely useful book that helps parents and their adults children through a stressful time of life for everyone concerned."
