Editorial Reviews

?Policy "wonks," researchers, academicians, legislators and legislative aids, advocates, program planners, service providers, lawyers, and judges who work in the fields of guardianship and caregiving for older persons will all find interesting and useful information in this book. Also, there are protions that offer valuable advice for guardians or for persons who are considering petitioning for guardianship or acting as guardian. Like a pu-pu platter or Forrest Gump's ubiquitous box of chocolates, this book provides something for everyone and is particularly well-suited for those who like to pick and choose what they want to ingest.?-Journal of Women & Aging
