Product description


With this third edition of Parenting Your Parents: Straight Talk about Aging in the Family the authors, Bart Mindszenthy and Dr. Michael Gordon, have added a new level of insight and sensitivity to the issues encountered by families as they try to unravel the various problems that they will inevitably face as their parents age and gradually decline.

(Caledon Spectrum)

These Family Case Studies provide a compelling context in which to absorb the authors’ practical advice about addressing – as a family – issues like stroke, surgery, independence, dementia, and end of life decisions with patience, tact, and reason. (WhaleyEstateLitigation.com)

[The] authors write eloquently and compassionately about each case study, weighing in on treatment plans and on which family members are behaving suitably under the circumstances. Mindszenthy's chapter on his mother's dementia and the personal anguish it caused his family is a cry from the heart that sends the ultimate message of the book with great clarity: 'It's a portion of life none of us is prepared to – or wants to – face. However, it's there, and for each of us, it's there in a different way and form.' (Publisher's Weekly (US))
