Filled with inspiring stories from real people and packed with creative ideas, this thought-provoking book shows readers how to transform caregiving into an act of spiritual growth and personal discovery.

Drawing on AARP''s deep wellspring of expertise in the topic, AARP''s Caring for Your Parents explains how to help your elderly parents improve their lives-with a difference. By revealing the wealth of knowledge we stand to learn from other cultures-specifically, those that venerate elders as keepers of priceless wisdom-this eye-opening book guides readers through a new, creative approach to caregiving that turns familial duty into a journey of emotional development and resolution.

Based on a 32-page National Magazine Award-nominated special feature, Caring for Your Parents documents the innovative ways in which real people are coping with this age-old issue. Throughout the book you will also find useful, field-tested recommendations from AARP''s staff of experts. Topics explored in depth run the gamut from locating quality health care to avoiding consumer scams to planning the disposition of an estate. There are also tips on designing your parents'' house to make it more elder-friendly, navigating the hidden dangers of assisted living, and dealing with the invisible sibling issue. A resource guide in each chapter lists help lines, websites, and consumer action groups.

Thirty million Americans are looking for a new, more effective approach to eldercare. Caring for Your Parents is the answer. By including the wisdom of ancient cultures within the pages of this thoroughly modern guide, the editors of AARP The Magazine have provided lessons that can be adapted to any family situation in a profoundly personal way.
