I wrote Don’t Give Up on Me! from an outline of the 50 things I wish I had known before entering the last decade of my parents’ lives. It’s a fast-paced, show-and-tell book that brings you ringside during those very crazy years, helping you to understand not just the what but also the how of providing support. How do you wrestle the checkbook or the keys away from mom? How should you and your parents navigate the medical system to get the care they need? What happens if one shows signs of dementia? How can grandchildren be supportive? What legal documents really matter? What influences longevity? Is the doctor always right?
Today, there are thousands of websites and dozens of books that offer information, but Don’t Give Up On Me! is a great place to start, the place to find the initial and critical pieces of information on caring for your parents.
I hope you will read my book and join forces with me to share your knowledge with others. All profits will be used to fund programs that serve our elders and support their caregivers or care partners.
