What a great book! It has so many practical tips and provides a lot of info about how the medical system really works. The author has such a sense of compassion: for both my aging parent and for myself as a caregiver. It left me with a lightness of spirit and a sense that I really could keep myself sane while still taking care of my mother. I’ve bought extra copies; will pass along to several of my friends who are dealing with this very issue. –Betty Falcao
