The Essential Eldercare Handbook for Nevada
“This is a must-have for the aging community, professional and lay-person, be they the older adult’s child or the older adult. It belongs on everyone’s bookshelf!”
-Phyllis Militello, former assistant director, Nevada Geriatric Education Center, University of Nevada, Reno
The senior years can be daunting, for spouses, children, other caregivers, and seniors themselves. Too often a sudden crisis leaves a family unprepared and feeling helpless. Chronic illnesses and limited funds can present difficult and emotional choices regarding care or housing. Boyer and Shapiro provide Nevada specific information – medical, legal, and financial – on the wide range of problems that arise during the elder years. Case studies show how a typical family copes with troubles such as failing health or financial cares and what options they have. This guide will help Nevada residents plan for their own senior years and take care of aging parents, spouses, and other loved ones.
