A Bittersweet Season: Caring for Our Aging Parents and Ourselves

Author: Jane Gross

This is a wonderful resource. Essentially it is the author’s story of the experience of seeing her mother through the transitional stage of life described as being aged and independent to aged and increasingly dependent. She describes the pitfalls and challenges for individuals and families going through similar circumstances and ways to avoid them or at least minimize their impact. There is lots of information about long term care, medicare, medicaid, nursing homes, assisted living and end of life planning. I recommend this book for those of you taking the journey yourselves and for family members who are looking for support and information.
