Halpern's guide addresses adult children whose parents are experiencing the problems associated with old age: the loss of independence, energy, income, mobility, health, friends, and family to sickness and death. Aiming to help adult children avoid becoming overwhelmed by the care of a dependent parent, Halpern claims that the children can manage successfully if they know what they are doing by acquainting themselves with facts and alternatives. They also need to learn how to cope with the stress, depression, guilt, exhaustion, and panic that often accompanies care of elderly parents. Aside from emotional, practical, and health concerns, the book discusses such alternative living arrangements as nursing homes or having the parent move into the child's home. Recommended for public libraries. Ruth H. Dukelow, Lib . of Michigan, Lansing
