Parenting Your Parents, 3rd Edition
Available at better bookstores and online
Are you struggling to manage your parent's health care, finances, quality of life, or even independence? If so, you’re not alone.
Many millions of people globally and especially in North America are confronting a new reality as an unprecedented demographic change sweeps over the world. People are living longer than ever before, thanks to medical science and positive life-style changes. As a result, millions of elderly parents and grandparents have slowly but surely become more dependent on their loved ones, especially their adult children, to provide them with the love, care, support, and attention they need.
More often than not, these ‘children’ are faced with juggling to balance caring for aging parents while maintaining their jobs and relationships with spouses and growing kids … let alone trying to find some 'me' time. If this is your world, or heading that way, Parenting Your Parents will be a welcome source of support, information and advice for navigating the challenges you’re confronting.
Since the last edition in 2006, much has happened in the field of eldercare. There is now an increasing awareness of the complex challenges posed by the expanding aging population in North America.
The third edition of Parenting Your Parents shows, through 24 case studies and the personal experiences of the authors, that you are not alone and offers crucial advice to help you along this difficult but rewarding journey. It also offers the all-new Vulnerability Index to help you assess how much support your parents may need right now, as well as a financial planning section and fully updated, comprehensive Resource Directory.
