Halladay Don't Let Your Children Choose Your Nursing Home A guide to Planning Your Elderhood. ISBN 978-0-6151432-3-1
Here is abook that everyone over the age of 55 needs to read. It is a short book and in paperback at that. But it is one of most practical and positive Retirement Planning and Planning for Aging books I have read.
Betty Halladay suddenly became guardian and decision maker for her Mother in law, her Mother and her Aunt. She seems to have navigated the system well and ensured that these women had positive experiences in their Elderhood. In the process the author learned a lot and in this book she passes that knowledge on to her readers in an upbeat and practical way.
Whether you are the major caregiver for a relative or have the good sense to be thinking about your own future, this book can offer both information, practical tips and an upbeat attitude.
This author is very serious about her title, Don't Let Your Children Choose Your Nursing Home. Your children may love you BUT they really do not understand the life you now lead, the things that really count to you about your day to day existence, what motivates you to get up in the morning or even what you want in your later years. They are in the midst of their adult years. Their experiences do not match yours. What they might consider important in a Nursing home or Assisted Care facility may not be what is important to you.
This book offers practical insight and it may change your mind about trying to 'stay put' until the very end. In other cases, it shows you what you need to put in place now if you do want to stay put until the end.
Upbeat, practical and full of information, Don't Let Your Children Choose Your Nursing Home is worth a read. And you may find yourself referring to again and again as you move into your elder years.
