From Library Journal:

Shambhala, dist. by Random. Apr. 1987. c.206p. bibliog. index. ISBN 0-87773-390-2. $16.95. soc sci/psych Communication between elderly parents and adult children about changes in lifestyle created by the aging process can be a daunting task for all concerned. Speaking and listening skills, never fully developed during a family's early years, may prove inadequate in coping with such sensitive issues as the elderly person's physical or mental health, changes in financial or legal situations, death and dying, or the need for a nursing home. Edinberg, a clinical psychologist, explores communications styles, skills, and strategies and identifies basic patterns of family interaction. Amply illustrated with case studies, his book is an excellent guide for relatives who must participate in difficult family discussions, discussions which can, however, lead to greater familial understanding.
