The Tarnished Golden Years: A Guide to Parenting Your Elderly Parent


The ESSENTIAL GUIDE for senior citizens, their adult children, and anyone who hopes to be a senior someday!


Why is this book essential?


The aging populace will experience physical or mental problems, or both, and more so with each passing year.  In trying to keep pace with the ever-increasing complex world in which we live, the demands on seniors and their families will grow. Decisions regarding housing, insurance, caregiving, and medical services (to name just a few issues) will require time and expertise.   One of the highest priorities of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is to “increase the number of older adults who live longer, high-quality, productive, and independent lives.” Toward that noble end, this book was created!
