Growing old need not signal the end of one?s productivity nor represent a threat to leave one?s home. Anne R. Rachin's heartwarming new book is a roadmap for how we can achieve this hopeful goal for our aging loved ones.
?I was a Nurse but . . . my Dad . . . wanted to die in his own home . . . . How quickly my sorrow gave way to peace when Dad looked in my eyes and said, 'Thank you,' before he slipped away. In this book, Anne gives all of us the knowledge to gain that same peace for our parents.??Donna Martin, RN, home care supervisor.
Growing old should neither signal the end of one?s productivity nor represent a threat to leave one?s home. Yet most individuals rarely consider their choices or discuss long term care until mired in medical crisis. Home care, a viable, cost effective option, is seldom promoted.
ALL THAT'S FAMILIAR offers a practical, hands-on guide demonstrating how in-home care provides assistance with daily living tasks, enabling individuals to remain in the familiar comfort of their own home.
? . . . I wish I'd had Rachin's book when trying to navigate the ins and outs of home care for both my 90-year-old father and my paraplegic husband.?Gail Mangurian, South Shore, Massachusetts.
?This book [is] a hopeful vision for us all as we begin to consider how to manage the best interests of our aging loved ones . . . . 'Aging In Place' offers an option that reclaims dignity and real personal choice for seniors and their families.??Nicole Conneally, Chepachet, RI.
