PARENTING YOUR PARENTS

by Bart Mindszenthy, APR, Fellow CPRS and Michael Gordon, M.D.

Its an experience shared by almost all of us at some point in our lives, yet we all feel like it's something we go through alone. When our parents reach a certain age, and are unable to cope the way they did when they were younger, we find ourselves wondering how to provide them with the kind of love, care, support, affection, and attention they need - just as they have done for us all our lives.

Now a national bestseller, Parenting Your Parents examines the experiences of 19 families facing the challenge of helping and supporting their aging parents through a range of demanding situations. Each story demonstrates that we are not alone - that many thousands of us face similar challenges every day, everywhere.

With reflections and advice from Canada's pre-eminent geriatric physician, as well as a personal planner and a list of organizations and services that can be of assistance, Parenting Your Parents is a valuable resource for anyone facing this special family crisis. An American version of the book also is available. Both books may be ordered through bookstores or online through the following links:
