Baby boomers are aging and retiring, creating the largest group of seniors the world has ever known. This trend has adult children looking at uncertain futures of meeting their retirement and life goals while providing for their aging parents. Along this journey of providing care, many care givers are dealing with life crippling stress. 54% of female care givers exhibit chronic health conditions, while 51% of women caregivers exhibit life altering symptoms of depression. Nan writes from the perspective of having lived through the experience of caring for her parents. She has also been the care giver for 3 other elderly loved ones. Not only does Nan cover how to combat or prevent life crippling depression, she also helps the reader traverse the mine fields of elder care such as: * Is it time for our elder to hang up the car keys? * How to deal with hospital stays and doctor's appointments? * What happens if they get dementia? * Should they live with us, or a care facility? * How to deal with our loved ones belongs after they relocate to the nursing home or after the loved one has passed away? The reader will find themselves laughing at the humorous moments, and wiping away the tears as Nan takes you through her emotional journey. Not only will the reader be entertained but they will come away with many handy tools to put in their own personal tool box of elder care.

About the Author:

Nan McAdam has had a prestigious career in both agricultural and in the financial sales arena. She has led sales teams for over 20 years. She has not only been involved in individual sales, but the training, coaching and leading of other sales people. In the early 1990's another avenue opened up for her to dedicate herself. Her parents were growing older and with that came health issues for them. She knew it was time to help them with their old age challenges any way she could. It was time to embrace being a caregiver. Little did she know it would be one of the most challenge careers of her life. She has since been helping 5 other loved ones navigate the experience of old age. Nan is an author of two blogs. She has been a fan of self improvement for many years and has passed her knowledge of leadership, parenting, and how to live a more enriched life in her blog: http://www.selfimprovementinformation.com. She is, also, the author of an elder care blog: http:www.caring4youragingseniorcitizen.com. When Nan isn't care giving or writing, she is spending time with her family. She has been married to the same wonderful man for 35 years and has 3 children and two grandchildren. She makes her home in the Midwest where she lives with her husband and 3 furry four legged family members.
