Let down by the 'system' Ann Benton, aided by a team of helpers, charts the journey of her father-in-law from unsatisfactory hospital care, through spectacularly absent 'care in the community', to being looked after at home. In If it's not too much trouble, she gives a Christian perspective on caring for your aged parent as well as giving practical tools to help those who find themselves in the same situation. Ann brings out the positive benefits of caring for those unable to look after themselves in her light-hearted, poignant and straightforward manner.

This is the updated and expanded edition of the book that first came out in 2007. I had read the original but was very glad of the excuse to re-read it, The last three chapters seem new and are really worth having. I think any Christian who has elderly parents that they are involved in caring for will find this a very valuable book. It's encouraging, practical, Christ centred and an easy read! You could even lend it to a non-believer struggling with the issues to help give a new perspective and to share your faith.
Here is an excellent primer for those who may have to care for an elderly parent. From her own experience of providing a secure and loving environment for her father-in-law in the last 18 months before he died, Ann Benton provides us with down-to-earth, biblically rooted, practical advice.
Caring for an elderly relative is a problem many of us will have to grapple with and here's a Christian perspective on the subject. In this easy-to-read book, Anne follows her father-in-law's journey from unsatisfactory hospital care through absent care in the community to being looked after at home. Written in a light-hearted style, here's heartfelt experience and wise advice for those facing similar challenges.
