Reston, VA, United States, 2011/11/30 - The dilemma of caring for aging parents is growing and the must-have resource for families is now available in eBook format - BabyBoomerEldercare.com.
Author Bart Astor’s unexpected personal journey led him to write The Baby Boomer's Guide to Caring for Aging Parents, critically regarded for being today’s must-have healthcare resource, and it’s now being offered in eBook format for the first time.
The Baby Boomer's Guide to Caring for Aging Parents explains step-by-step what needs to be done as parents age. This easy-to-use handbook provides instructions and helpful tips for navigating through the various administrative procedures with the critical information you need to make caring for an aging parent easier to manage.
Readers can rest assured Astor’s perspective comes from personal experience, both good and bad, and sometimes that’s what matters most. Having a second parent require care not long after his family’s initial ordeal forced him to learn from his mistakes – Astor is not a medical professional, he’s a caring son who has been there.
“In addition to making sure all the small details are covered, there’s one message I hope readers will get from this book,” says Astor. “And that’s that we did not parent our parents. We helped them and we encouraged them when we could. But we didn’t make decisions for them. We always treated them with the same respect we know we would want to receive.”
Inside families will learn about:
- The latest changes in Medicare and Social Security.
- What you must know about your parents’ financial and legal affairs.
- How to help your parents stay fit and healthy.
- When your parents need more help than you can give.
- Choosing doctors and long term care facilities.
- Legal documents & forms to help you hire home healthcare aides.
- Who else can help you, including a comprehensive list of resources, with websites.
What experts are saying: “Bart Astor's excellent book, Baby Boomer's Guide to Caring for Aging Parents, helps the sandwich generation walk the line between giving and giving too much, with caring and concern.” - Dr. Joyce Brothers
