Publisher's Description

Now more than ever, most people are faced with difficult decisions about caring for an ailing parent, spouse, or relative. The caregiving process is often a daunting task with many unanswered questions: "I work full-time-how can I be in two places at once?" "How will we pay for in-home care?" "Do I really want Dad to move in?" "How do I bring up sensitive issues like not driving?" "How do I get my siblings to pitch in?" "Where do they keep their legal documents and important papers?" On top of regular work and family responsibilities, caregiving can be a full-time job. Fortunately, you need not face the task alone. The Complete Eldercare Planner provides an invaluable resource to help you along the way.

Topics include:

  • Getting Help
  • Long-Distance Caregiving
  • Moving out of the Family Home
  • Essential Questions to Ask
  • Responding to an Emergency
  • Is Spirituality Good Medicine?
  • Managing Guilt
  • Juggling Work and Family
  • Paying for Care
  • Managing Medications
  • Saying Good-bye
