How to Care for Aging Parents - a Book

How to Care for Aging Parents

From the Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database:

Tools for improving the quality of life as we grow older — shared by the Tech-enhanced Life community.



The book "How to Care for Aging Parents" covers finding help, paying for care, housing, money, working with siblings, and more.  In the first chapter there is a section entitled, "Signs That Your Parents Needs Help".  It talks about having difficult discussions with your parents and siblings.  It lists documents you need to have, a will, a power of attorney, and advanced directives.  There is a checklist for information you will need.  It talks about caring for the caregiver, because caregivers often suffer burn-out.

The American Geriatrics Society said, "It's easy to understand, painstakingly researched, and comprehensive. Best of all, it's warmly empathetic. An award-winning writer, Virginia Morris understands the terrain... From the first conversation to the last, Morris provides an invaluable guide."

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the products.


Note: If you want to support our work, please use these links when you buy any of the products we write about, as we sometimes get a small percentage of the sale from the manufacturer, which we use to support our research. (This does not effect the price you pay).
