Oh My God! We're Parenting our Parents: How to Transform this Remarkable Challenge into a Journey of Love. Kindle Edition.

Amazon's blurb: In her new book, “OH MY GOD! WE’RE PARENTING OUR PARENTS: How to Transform this Remarkable Challenge into a Journey of Love” Jane Wolf Waterman, M.S.W., J.D. cuts to the chase with insight and practical advice for the millions of adults caring for their aging parents.

“OH MY GOD! WE’RE PARENTING OUR PARENTS” addresses topics including emotional issues, financial and legal problems, disagreements between siblings, resistance among parents to accept care from their children, long-distance logistical challenges, common obstacles faced by adult children and elderly parents, planning in advance to take care of one’s parents, maintaining normal life balance while tending to aging parents, the impact and role of grandchildren and many other areas that are critical to dealing with elderly parents.

Among many other things, the book will teach readers how to:
• Identify the initial signs elderly parents need help,
• Decide if they are the right person for the job,
• Maintain family and career while taking care of elderly parents.
• Redefine relationships with parents and siblings,
• Assess the needs of senior parents and find the right services and help,
• Heal old family wounds that will interfere with taking care of one’s parents,
• Evaluate an aging parent’s ability to live alone, and
• Compassionately talk with an elderly parent about their need for help or changes that
need to be made.

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).
