Title: 10 Things Every Family Should Know
Aging with Dignity and Independence
Author: Denise Logeland
Release Date: 3rd March 2015
BLURB from Amazon
This book answers critical questions about how we can live the independent lives we crave as we age. It covers how we can help our parents — and ultimately ourselves — plan for housing, health care and financial security.
I saw this one on Amazon and thought it the type of book everyone should read to know their own rights and that of their loved one especially if they have health issues or are elderly. So I was quite interested to read this one after reading the blurb (as above) on Amazon.
As I said in my "Initial Thoughts" I saw this one on Amazon UK and decided it was something that maybe I should read.
So the blurb of this book really describes it's contents perfectly. Though it also has advice in how to broach certain possibly awkward subjects with your loved ones.
This book is written with American laws and regulations
|Though this book is written about the American system and lists American organisations, its still well worth reading for the idea's and hey it doesn't matter where in the world you live we all age and face similar issues and problems. If this book only serves as the ice breaker that encourages you to have 'the talk' then its well worth reading.
Did I find the book useful? Yes, as it made me think about my own health and mortality as well as that of my parents and other loved ones.
Would I recommend the book? Yes as I've said it is more American aimed and relevant but it would serve as a conversation starter and give you idea's as what you would need to put in place.
