|Summary, etc.:|| "In the next few years, 66 million Americans will be caring for an aging parent. "Over eighty-five" is the nation's fastest growing age group, a trend that keeps growing as ten thousand Americans turn sixty-five every day. The desire to help our elders navigate health issues is clear and universal--how to assure proper care and a good ending is not. Combining adroit storytelling skills with expert advice, this book brings the reader into the all-too-familiar scenarios facing our aging parents and offers answers to questions we may not know to ask until it's too late"-- Provided by publisher.
