My Parents Got Old Now What Do I Do Book Excerpt:

An aging population means an increasing number of children take care of their parents. While adult children have been their elderly parents’ caregivers for generations, those in that role today face challenges others have not. It’s no wonder many feel overwhelmed and stressed when they first take responsibility for those who once took care of them. Author Janine Brown’s My Parents Got Old! What Do I Do? A Practical Guide to Caring for Your Aging Parents helps you face and get through the issues surrounding your role as adult child and parental caregiver. Brown is not a lawyer, accountant, or doctor. She writes from the personal experience—hers and others—of caring for aging parents. She shares information to help caregivers and potential caregivers assess needs and skills necessary to providing their parents with the best possible care. Through her experiences, you’ll gain an understanding of what happens in real life; Brown takes caregiving beyond the theoretical to the practical. Checklists help you stay organized, which can be very helpful in situations with heightened emotions. You’ll appreciate the author’s holistic approach to the adult caregiving, including chapters on family ties and the emotional reality of what is to come. There’s no doubt caring for an elderly parent can be difficult and trying. With My Parents Got Old! Now What Do I Do? A Practical Guide to Caring for Your Aging Parents, you won’t be alone on this journey. You’ll have the benefit of others who have been there.

Old Age and the Search for Security Book Excerpt:

"Haber and Gratton lay to rest many conventional assumptions concerning the place of older persons in American history." -- Choice "Haber and Gratton's meaty little book does more than provide an intelligent synthesis of existing old-age history; its new interpretations, insights, and shifts of emphasis will provoke responses and help move historians' work away from the now threadbare original disputes in e field toward new questions and approaches." -- American Historical Review "Indeed, Haber and Gratton give us a refreshingly multidimensional history of the shift in old-age security from work, assets, or children to government annuities." -- Contemporary Sociology "... the history of old age has finally come of age. The authors successfully synthesize the best of the earlier social and cultural studies with new empirical evidence and recent findings of economic historians." -- Journal of Economic History "A truly 'revisionary' interpretation of the cultural and structural forces that shaped the elderly's lives from the colonial period to the present. Lucid and controversial, [it] is bound to be widely cited and hotly contested." -- W. Andrew Achenbaum This social history of the American elderly offers a provocative new view of aging in the United States. It revises traditional assumptions about the economic status of the old and challenges the long-held contention that industrialization destroyed family relationships.

Navigating the Journey of Aging Parents What Care Receivers Want Book Excerpt:

Navigating the Journey of Aging Parents proposes an entirely unique approach to the field of gerontology, giving dependent care receivers a voice. Caregivers will be made aware of what care receivers truly want during life's final chapters. Exploring issues of housing, spirituality, personal care and death, Cheryl Kuba has created a testament to the dependent elderly. This book draws on numerous interviews with aging people and discusses common caregiver mistakes and interpretations, what a caregiver should expect when an aging parent moves in, and how to care for an aging parent from afar. Kuba also delves into such phenomena as guilt, role reversal, changing family dynamics, financial stress, and caring for oneself while caring for another. The 22.4 million elderly people being cared for in the United States comprises the fastest growing segment of the population, making this reference on the opinions and concerns of care receivers invaluable.

The Unheard Voice of the Aging Parent Book Excerpt:

Our purpose in writing this book is to share our clinical experiences in working with seniors and elderly patients and their adult children. The primary emphasis is on how the parent uses his or her therapy to resolve conflicts in their relationships with their middle aged children. The literature already speaks volumes about how the adult child feels and behaves during the latter years of their parents' lives, however our book represents the voice of the elderly parent, which prior to this, has gone unheard. The information in our book is not only useful to the elderly parent and adult child, but it also informs the audience of mental health professionals who treat this population.

The Caregiver s Survival Handbook Book Excerpt:

Being a caregiver can be rewarding but demanding work-and more than 40 million adult children find themselves experiencing the double duty of caring for their elders as they try to carry on a life of their own. The mission of this book is to help caregivers figure out how to look after aging loved ones, provide for other family members, and attend to their own career-without losing themselves in the process. In this supportive, reassuring, and practical guide, Doctor Alexis addresses the most pressing concerns, including such issues as how to: * Get all family members to pitch in * Let go of feelings of guilt * Avoid conflict with an aging loved one * Foster independence in the elderly * Balance the demands on one's own time and resources "I have encountered few people who have the knowledge, experience, and passion that Alexis possesses for serving older persons. Alexis has accomplished a lot and has gained a well-deserved national reputation as an authority on issues affecting older persons." -Horace B. Deets, former executive director of AARP
