"Lynda Shrager shares her extensive knowledge, pragmatic know-how and empathic perspective about one of the most challenging questions many adult children need to ask themselves when it comes to their aging parents—What do we do now?

She also skillfully assists her readers to manage this challenging and often emotionally draining issue, while making sure the aging parent continues to feel loved, respected, and safe. It's a must-read for anyone facing this overwhelming, yet very common, situation." —Dr. Robi Ludwig, TV host/personality, author, and psychotherapist
