About the book:
The author sites 49 rules as a survival kit for "kids" while looking after their aging parents. If you are presently a caregiver or are going to be one soon then this book is for you. And yes, someday YOU will be the one who needs the special attention and care from a loved one, as we all will, so it's for you too.
Pamela tells of her own personal experiences with her beloved parents as life-changing decisions must be made. She is well aware that these moves will significantly alter the rest of their lives: from moving them out of their familiar, comfort zone to the constant monitoring of their health and general well-being.
This book is written in a journalistic fashion and even though the subject matter is educational and serious she manages to tell it in a witty, practical and humorous way. She draws back the curtain and with underlying raw honestly discusses not only the burden but the privilege of caring for her parents until they are no more. She wisely includes a useful appendix of websites, definitions and other sundries that are of great benefit to the reader for such a time as this. I highly recommend this book.
