This book provides brief descriptions of the different options for caring for aging relatives and friends, ranging from aging in place, family care, senior centers and day care, non-medical and medical in-home care, and retirement and independent living communities, to more intense or later-stage care such as assisted living, skilled nursing centers, and hospice. The book also addresses funerals, bereavement, financing care, and complications and difficult issues (such as parent-child antagonisms and sibling disagreement). The book ends with suggestions for caring for the caregiver as well as planning your own future. It's a good overview with some helpful sidebars with tips and questions to ask. The authors are the founders of a prominent in-home care company, but they are upfront about this, and pretty fair presenting other options. Considering the book's publication date (2010), any quotes on pricing or government policies need to be updated or double-checked for relevance. Nevertheless, I found this book to be helpful. ( )
