Having friends who struggle as members of the sandwich generation, that large percentage of the American population dealing with both adult children living at home and elderly parents, I highly recommend this book. The story line tugs on the emotions; the language is for the lay person; the suggestions and guidelines are for anyone who finds themselves dealing with the elderly.
Particularly useful are the suggestions on how to handle the frustrations. Just to know that,"Wow, I'm not the only one that feels that way," gives hope and comfort in an otherwise seemingly hopeless situation.
These authors, speaking from their combined voices of more than 30 years of experience with their own elderly, sometimes helpless parents, bring credibility and hope to the pages.
This is a must read for anyone whose parent is losing his or her independence. Who to talk to? What to do? Where to go for help? When to act? Why is this happening? How to deal with the emotions? These and many more questions are answered and issues addressed.

I found this book to be an invaluable resource for everyone who is, has been or will be faced with caring for a loved one. And that's just about all of us. The authors take the helplessness and fear out of a difficult, heartwrenching task and lead us through it sanely and compassionately. I had no idea how huge was the problem of "elder abuse". Not only was this book's information well written but Bessie's story, which read like a novel, touched me deeply. I could see the frustration, the scenes were alive and when she died, I cried and cried. As one who has had a grandmother in such a home and who is now taking care of my invalid husband in my home, I found the part about caregivers particularly helpful. I applaud the authors and suggest this book to everyone. In fact, it should be in every doctor's office in the country. THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL BOOK.

Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way, as did this author, that help and protection for vulnerable elders is pretty much non-existent. Actually, even for the rich and famous ( famous recent example would be the abuse charges against a son of famous author Ann Rule being dropped upon her death (sure gives the son a strong motivation to speed her demise, which is easy as weak and vulnerable as she was).

Anyway, this author Diane Sandell has done society a great service by sharing her story. Thanks, Diane.
