Summary "Gerontologist and 'aging life-care manager' Mary Jo Saavedra, with the help of other experts on the elderly, delivers on the promise in her subtitle... [T]his just-the-facts service guide gathers a large amount of good information in one place and fills a serious need: the over-65 population will number 54 million by 2020 and 80 million by 2030. Saavedra's book will get a lot of use. -Booklist"-- Unedited summary from back cover.
"What sets 'Eldercare 101 : a practical guide to later life planning, care, and wellbeing' apart from other guides to family decision making in later life is the unique approach taken by Saavedra and her co-authors. Older adults and those who care about and for them are viewed holistically and reverentially. The complex issues they face together are considered in ways that are both practical and inspirational. I anticipate that this guide will become a valuable and indispensable resource for many. -Jennifer Sasser, Phd, Educational Gerontologist, author, and convener of the Gero-Punk Project"-- Unedited summary from back cover.
