|For Immediate Release:
Make the care of aging parents a fulfilling experience instead of an unmanageable one. The Who, What and Where of Elder Care is a quick step-by-step reference guide created by Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, Jewish Convalescent & Nursing Home and Hodes, Ulman, Pessin & Katz, P.A. to help adult children who become caregivers through the jumble of changes that can affect the whole family.
"There are so many medical, legal and emotional aspects to handle when an older loved one begins to slow down, both physical and mentally,” says Susan Levy, MD, Levindale and Jewish Convalescent's medical director. "Many decisions often have to be made at the same time, so we want our book to make that transitional time less overwhelming.”
The topics in the manual include knowing when children should intervene; learning how to talk to a parent about critical decisions; preparing the family for the emotional roller coaster ride of care giving; understanding the legal system and negotiating through the maze of medical insurance policies.
"This book is filled with information that children can have at their fingertips. It takes the fear of the unknown out of the equation,” says Michael Hodes, managing director of Hodes, Ulman, Pessin & Katz, P.A.
The Who, What and Where of Elder Care is arranged so the topics can be easily found when information is needed immediately or when options must be considered for the future. There are also worksheets and checklists, as well as website addresses and the phone numbers of agencies geared to help the elderly.
