Book Review 

This book is a compact, well written guide to helping those who care for seniors and seniors who care for themselves.  It is short, simple, and well written.  It is packed full of good advice and essential resources for seniors and those who help care for them

The book is divided into logical sections that deal with caregiver and senior issues.  These issues are presented in simple bite sized pieces.  They are easy to understand and easy to use.  Most of the information is good advice for not only caregivers but all of us.  

Not only are the authors obviously experienced caregivers but they have inserted thoughtful anecdotes from people who are caregivers  throughout the book.  The authors are also quite obviously caring and concerned.  One of their most salient points that they make over and over is that we will all be seniors at one point or another and we should look at the things we do from the point of view of the people who we are helping.  

This book is a must read for all of us.  As the world population grows older, the advice in this book will become more and more topical for everyone.

An excellent resource directory is presented at the back, packed with essential resources for seniors.  These are great resources and highly useful to both seniors and caregivers.

This is a terrific book and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a caregiver or a senior.

If you would like to buy a copy of the book, the Center will receive a small commission if you buy the book from Amazon.  This is a good way to help the Center and help yourself to learn about caregiving and all of its attendant issues.
