Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140237143, Paperback)

Caring for an aging parent poses many concerns: How can an adult child (or chadult, as author Harriet Schiff calls them), protect the dignity and independence of an aging parent? When should a chadult take over the grocery shopping, house cleaning, checkbook, and medical decisions? When is a nursing home the best option? How can parents and chadults prepare for the future before a crisis is reached? Schiff, an accomplished daily news reporter and book author, addresses all these questions and more, using real life anecdotes and her professional experience as the admissions coordinator for 13 nursing homes.
