Net Galley Book Review :
I will be the first to say I needed this book. We moved home 7 years ago so that I could help my parents . But sometimes its hard on both of us. They see me as a young child they need to protect and I see them as they get older and less able to take care of themselves.
This book is filled with good advice that I shared with my family and we made a list of legal and family matters that we need to get straight. But this for any one taking care of a parent or yourself – you are not alone .. Lisa
