Seventeen million Americans are caring for their elderly parents, and 44 million baby boomers are in the wings. Drawing on her experience shepherding her father through his final years and as a clinical psychologist for 33 years, Janis Abrahms Spring gives a language to this ordinary, extraordinary journey and helps us feel less crazy, helpless, and alone. She teaches us to calm our inner critic when our resources run dry and balance our needs against those of our parents. With unsparing honesty, and humor, she addresses the happiness and heartache of the job -- dealing with living arrangements, sibling rivalries, money anxieties, and healthcare. She also offers universal lessons about growing old gracefully. (karenharris)
