Caring For Your Parents

The Complete Family Guide

by Hugh Delehanty & Elinor Ginzler


Published by the AARP in 2005, this book was revised, updated and newly published in 2008. It is filled with wonderful advice.


This book targets the major issues: how to talk to your parents about needing care; common problems with siblings; health care, bills, insurance, scams, and lawyers; money; the physical and mental processes of aging; living arrangements; and saying good-bye. All of this advice and information is offered with compassion and occasional humor. There is a well organized selection of worksheets as well.


Caring For Your Parents belongs in the library of everyone who loves older people.
