Dr. Lynn Edwards shares with us another in her series of family empowerment books. "Parenting Senior Parents" is plain talk about tough issues facing us as we take on the care of our aging senior parents. It focuses on the critical financial, legal, medical, nursing home, driving, and Medicare concerns that are unique to the special needs of our seniors. It offers ways to facilitate healthy conversations about such matters with parents and siblings as we tackle the increasing responsibility of "Parenting Senior Parents." It addresses the sensitive issues of Alzheimer's, Depression, and loss of independence that dramatically impact entire families. It brings compassion and understanding to directing care with dignity, offering several helpful hints to helping aging seniors ensure their independence as long as possible. And it gives us a platform for preparing for our own senior years, encouraging a dialog with our children and potential caregivers, now.
