9780997678109: 9 Realities of Caring for an Elderly Parent: The Companion Playbook

When the End Is Near Are you worried about what will happen when Mom and Dad can no longer care for themselves? If the whole job of caregiving falls to you, this will be your essential playbook for managing their end-of-life period. The Memoir, 9 Realities of Caring for an Elderly Parent: A Love Story of a Different Kind, covers topics from keeping your parent safe in their own home, organizing their financial records, and de-cluttering while preserving memories to the aftermath including pre-designed funerals, acting as the executor trustee of the estate, and effectively communicating with siblings and attorneys. Grief counseling for the adult orphan is the final chapter. Funny and compassionate, this is the insider’s view of what to expect from your daunting role if you are the adult child coming home to care for your elderly parent until the very end. The Companion Playbook is the accompanying workbook that has been streamlined from the Memoir for the busy caregiver who does not have time for the backstory but needs to get started on the urgent To-do list today. Love is in the details. Preparation prevents regret. “How to navigate every stage of senior care...So heartfelt and palpable.” —Suzanne Pertsch, M.D., Internal Medicine “”[T]he A to Zs of elder care...until the end.” —Dody Lapworth, Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse “A job well done...[Shaffer’s]playbook for funeral design and estate management is indispensable.” —Catherine Raye-Wong, Estate Law, Aaron, Reichert, Carpol & Riffle APC “Managing finances is a critical aspect of elder care that Ms. Shaffer covers in-depth.” —Leonard A. Watson, Financial Advisor “Shaffer movingly and transparently draws the reader into this well-written, compelling book.” —Robert L. Hendren, D.O.. Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco “So engaging...Stefania is a spot-on spokesperson for all who experience caregiving.” —Stephanie Amsden, M.S.W., Grief Counselor
