    1. This comprehensive and well-organized guide provides a plethora of information and advice about the range of possible care situations faced by the elderly.

It also covers the role of the caregiver, family relationships (and conflicts), financial planning, and funeral/ [...]

    2. A well-organized, balanced, and informative look at being a caregiver to an older person. The authors are involved with an nationwide agency that provides in-home caregivers to elderly people, which may be somewhat of a conflict of interest, although they clearly disclose their organizational affiliation. They talk about caregiving to older people with varying kinds of medical and nonmedical needs and the various options available, and the reason why the best choices may change over time.

    3. Practical advice combined with a sympathetic voice. Learned some details of medicare, medicaid, and other health care issues that I was not aware of and will be useful.

    4. I was reading this book to learn how to prepare myself when I get old. Also I tried to find some advices on how to look after my aging parents who are living in china on their own most of the times. My takeaway from reading this book is that I should start planning for my insurance when I am old as soon as possible. Taking very good care of myself is the best I should do for our children so we won't be a burden for them later. This is also the lessons I learned from my parents.
