With more than 72 million ‘baby boomers’ currently in America, this means many families are, or will be, facing the administration of a parent’s care.
When the dust settled after two horrifically intense years of managing her mother’s care, caregivers, and finances, Faye Levow was determined to create a comprehensive resource so that no one would ever again be lost in the whirlwind of dealing with unprepared, aging parents. Her upcoming book, “OMG! My Parents Are Getting OLD!” (Launch Pad Publishing Inc.) is the result of that determination.
“OMG! My Parents Are Getting OLD! ” is a resource for families forced to deal with the mountain of information and red tape that faces them. With over 44 million family caregivers caring for aging family members in our society today, it’s a given that there is a tremendous need for such a resource. The practical information in this book hopes to make the transition easier and less complicated for both seniors and younger family members.
Full of 20/20 hindsight for family members and parents, the book has a comprehensive resource section (fully indexed), with readable chapters containing expertise from over fifty professionals who work with seniors on a daily basis in everything from finance, probate, senior living, insurance, veterans benefits, dementia, medical care, locating caregivers, hospice, funerals, and much more. Levow shares dramatic, true stories of caregivers, theft, finances, and family gone awry from more than seventy family caregivers who have actually ‘been there and done it.’
