"Who Will Take Care of Mom?" is a must-read for anyone who expects they will have to provide or coordinate long-term care for a parent, disabled or terminally ill relative. This life-changing experience happened to Cynthia Wilson when she was 34, single and poised to enter her peak earning years. Odds are that you or someone you know will have to take care of a parent sooner than expected because people are living longer, but not necessarily healthier. The trend is threatening America's economic prosperity and consuming individual wealth because Americans are spending more of their tax dollars, personal savings and time away from work on elder care. In "Who Will Take Care of Mom, A Guide for Family-Managed Senior Care," Cynthia examines the political debate surrounding senior care, along with some economic and employee trends that are affecting elder care, family life and the work place in America. She explains why family-managed care is the better solution for families and shows caregivers how to implement a family-managed care plan that provides safe, loving care for a relative, without forfeiting the family's wealth.
