 This extraordinary book provides the latest up to date information on residential aged care, costs of various options for care, common medical conditions in the elderly and much besides. It is immensely readable, being structured around stories from the writers’ lives and those of their friends and loved ones. If you are considering the next move as you get older, or are helping a friend or family member through this process, this is the book for you!—Dimity Pond, Professor of General Practice, School of Medicine and Public Health, Newcastle University

 

The role of carer for an aged person is often unexpected if not unwelcome but it is increasingly a common one.

 

The worst case scenario is a sudden emergency after which nothing ever returns to “normal”. For the better prepared, it still changes life more than you would ever have imagined and frequently brings with it responsibilities which keep you wakeful at night and exhausted by day.

 

The aged care system has changed considerably in recent years in relation to home and residential care Our aim in this book is to give you information to help you make decisions more confidently. Where should the aged person best live? What care do they need and who should provide it? Should the family home be sold now or later? What do you need to know and what can you do to make this troubling time easier?
