Unlike other books on the topic, The Complete Eldercare Planner is a comprehensive resource that includes time and money saving checklists, worksheets, websites, practical step-by-step action plans, low-cost resources, and questions to ask professionals. Whether you are someone who is currently taking care of an elder or are considering make the commitment to care for someone in the future, this book provides insights and advice on:

Before we conclude our chatter about this book, we should mention that the book was written for Americans predominantly and as such a number of the websites and resources referred to in the book might not apply directly to Canadians. Regardless, the book contains a wealth of information.
