KIRKUS REVIEW

A simple but sound guide for the younger generation who are increasingly called upon to help solve the problems of elderly relatives, this takes one over the emotional hurdles caused by death- or financial collapse, on to the necessary long-range planning for the survivor. The authors stress the advisibility of continued activity and independence on the part of older people, the pitfalls of living together, the alternatives, the roles of siblings and grandchildren -- all are carefully considered with good commonsense. Primarily designed for the sons and daughters upon whose shoulders the burden of caring for the aged will fall, this is also a good guide for the old folks on how to and how not to act in situations where dependence is thrust upon them.
