From the Back Cover
Keep your life in balance while maximizing the quality of life of an elderly loved one
When Shirley Roberts' father passed away, her life and career were put on hold as she focused on the demands of caring for her ailing mother, Doris. Drawing on their extensive business experience, Shirley and her brother devised a solution that they called Doris Inc. They applied management practices to caregiving to ensure that their mother received top-notch care, and they could still have lives of their own.
In Doris Inc. Shirley Roberts shares the strategies that worked so well for her family including:
Concrete advice about making tough decisions
Help navigating the health-care maze
Financial pitfalls and ways to avoid them
How to get help in a crisis
Tips on planning for your own golden years . . .
