Product Description

The Eldercare Handbook combines a daughter's compassion with the expertise of a trusted professional, thanks to Stella Henry's unique experiences as both a daughter who cared for her father at home and her mother in long-term care, and a 36-year veteran administrator who has counseled thousands of families on care giving.

In this accessible book, she helps readers navigate the daunting logistics and powerful emotions of making care decisions for a loved one. She tackles all the tough issues, from spotting the warning signs of dementia to redefining sibling roles; from the all-important walk-through at the assisted living facility or nursing home to making the move; from when and how to visit to coping with demands of "Take me home!" She also demystifies the medical/legal/insurance maze.

Publisher's Description

In this comprehensive and accessible guide, long-term care expert Stella Henry helps readers navigate the daunting logistics and powerful emotions of making care decisions for an elderly parent or loved one. Drawing from her 36 years as a registered nurse and a nursing home administrator, as well as her experience caring for both her parents (both of whom suffered the ravages of Alzheimer's disease), Henry tackles all the tough issues: spotting the warning signs of dementia, redefining sibling roles, doing a walk-through at an assisted living facility or nursing home, making the move, and coping with "take me home!" demands.She also explains the medical, legal, and insurance maze. In a time when almost 10 million Americans currently need long-term care, The Eldercare Handbook is an essential read.
