As someone who has worked professionally in the arena of adult social care for over 25 years and more recently had to deal with the need for care for a close relative, this book is a timely and very useful reminder of the do's and don'ts in dealing with increasing frailty and the need for a care home. This book is extremely helpful in guiding people through what can seem a maze of bureaucracy, at the same time not forgetting the personal aspects. * Simon Morris, former CEO of Jewish Care *
There has never been a more important time for a clear and concise guide like this - the care system can be a confusing (and sometimes perilous) maze, and families need to be well prepared and know all their options if they are going to make the right decisions for their loved ones. * Tony Watts, Director EngAgeNet *
Struggling to care for older relatives? The Essential Family Guide to Caring for Older People has lots of practical advice about help at home and funding the cost of care. * My Weekly *
You will be able to handle anything life throws at you with this book by your side. * Jo Robertson, My Chestnut Reading Tree *
A compassionate and well-researched 'bible' for anyone seeking advice on supporting their elderly friends or family members. * Jill Adams, On The Shelf Books *
It's practical, it's realistic both about what's available and the hurdles along the way, and it presents a vast amount of usable information in a digestible and accessible format. * Anne Williams, Being Anne *
What an absolute gem of a book this is. I will certainly be keeping it on hand to dip into from time to time. * Lynn Brown, Books in My Opinion *
I wish I could share this book with everyone - it is helpful for anyone facing ill health of themselves, their friends and families. * Maureen Moyes, Love Books Group *
From finance to medication, from care at home to care in a home this is such a useful tool for older people, those approaching older life, their family and carers. It is a book every household should read. * Janet Fearnley, Love Books Read Books *
Informative and helpful for a situation we will all face but never take the time to plan for. I highly recommend this book for all families. * One Girl and A Book *
