Summary

Summary

Written by a psychologist and a physician who have extensive experience in treating the elderly and first-hand knowledge of what it is like to care for an elderly parent, Eldercare offers practical, down-to-earth information on how to care for older persons. Emphasis is given to questions about the aging process, maintaining maximum independence, the pluses and minuses of home care, preparing a safe environment, how to choose a nursing home, nutrition and exercise, dealing with behavioral problems and basic medical concerns.

Eldercare is concerned with every aspect of the aging process, including the importance of family support and role reversal when the adult child takes on the responsibility of making the choices for an aging parent. Blending professional expertise and personal experience, the authors discuss not only the challenges confronting the aged and those who care for them, but also the opportunities for family growth and personal fulfillment.
