Chapter 2: Deciding on Loving Arrangements
“Our homes were designed, for the most part, for the
younger generation — for raising children and entertaining. Most were not designed for the special needs of advanced age and illness. The question arises for most seniors: Should they stay and live at home where they are comfortable? Or should they move in with family, or to an assisted living facility or nursing home?” … … These questions and more are answered.
Chapter 3: Living Safely at Home
“Seniors who have lived in a home for a long time don’t seem to see the dangers lurking around them. A great many seniors end up in hospitals because home safety was not seen as a priority.”
“This book provides a reliable, correct, and up-to-date summary by an experienced caregiver for seniors. Judith Stevens is a true expert. I strongly recommend this book to seniors, their families and caregivers.”
