It's no secret that our population is ageing. So who's looking after those ageing parents of ours? We are. And that's where this book comes in. Between managing our own young families and maintaining an income to support a never decreasing mortgage, we also have to find time to look after and support our parents without actually cracking under the pressure or killing off our siblings. Diseases, falls, nuclear medicine and new terminology…it's a maze of modern technology that our parents cannot navigate themselves. Looking after your Ageing Parents is an invaluable handbook for coping with these, the high maintenance years. Using the resources of surgeons to social workers, dealing with everything from prostate cancer to hearing loss, hospitals to hostels, Looking after your Ageing Parents leads you through the most difficult times. Included are moving stories from the author's own family experiences as well as case studies from others. Details of relevant websites and helplines provide straightforward access to more information and assistance. Written with love, respect and a touch of irreverence, Prue Miller shows the insight of someone who's been there in this practical but entertaining look at what lies ahead for us all. This is an essential book for every grown-up child.
