An outstanding book on caring for aging parents
I’ve been doing a lot of reading to get up to speed in my role at Compass Aging.
By far the best book I’ve read is A Bittersweet Season by Jane Gross, the original editor of the New York Times’ New Old Age blog. It combines a memoir of her time caring for her mother with a journalistic review of the industry and the challenges elders and their children must endure.
If you are older than 30 or have loved ones north of 60, you should read this book. You’ll thank me later.
