At last, after some years in the ‘wanting’ and two years in the ‘making’, my manuscript, “Are you ready for your ageing parents?” is finished. Here I am holding a copy. It’s real.
With a foreword from Noel Whittaker, it distils my many happy, sad and bad experiences acting as a lawyer in the practice of elder law over the last 20 years. More specifically, it analyses and provides suggestions and solutions to transform the dysfunctional family into a functional one. We are all so unprepared for the dynamics of our ageing parents and this should help.
In just over 250 pages, and riddled with stories, it traverses such areas as elderly parent personalities, sibling relationships, family planning and later life relationships, lifestyle options, money, elder abuse, sexual expression and the end of our parents’ lives.
For a bit of titillation, I attach the Contents Page of my book. Click here to see it.
