The emotion-charged process of providing care for your aging parents has (gratefully) become more complex over the past 20 years. What used to be a binary decision – choosing between family care at home and a nursing home – is now a maze of bewildering options and alternatives for the uninformed.

Stages of Senior Care will guide readers through this process by providing a clear and practical presentation of:

  • The options
  • The pros and cons of each
  • The relative costs
  • What to look for
  • What to avoid
  • The pitfalls
  • How to know which option is right when
  • How to pay for services and
  • How to deal with complications (family conflict, and caregiver stress) that are almost certain to occur.

Stages includes checklists and diagnostics designed to help families make good, life-affecting decisions while confidently planning the best care for those they love most.

Based on research, up-to-date information and the experience of 15 years in the senior care industry, the Hogans have provided a book that will take the trauma out of decision making, eliminate guilt, and build the confidence for those thrust into the position of making care decisions.

All of the authors’ profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation.
