PRLog - Aug. 18, 2012 - FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- "OMG! My Parents are Getting OLD!" is the definitive resource for those who have suddenly had to assume responsibilities to assist aging parents, as many as 40 million people today. These caregivers face very difficult, unfamiliar tasks and decisions daily.

Along with the job of caregiver, many are also full-time employees, and these two jobs generally do not run smoothly together. An employee’s productivity and morale are often low when they are sifting through their caregiving duties and attempting to gain footing in very unfamiliar territory. Absenteeism is also a concern. All of this impacts the employer’s bottom line.
If employees were given a resource before the inevitable occurred, perhaps the heavy burden of balancing both jobs would be less stressful and time consuming. Caregivers would know they are not alone and know the steps to take care of their elderly parents.
Conceived by Faye Levow, publisher and Success Book-Coach, "OMG! My Parents are Getting OLD!" has more than 50 chapters written by professionals who have the experience of working with seniors on a daily basis. Along with Levow's harrowing tale, there are lessons from over 60 family caregivers throughout the book, which is brimming with tips and advice to help caregivers when they are most vulnerable. This comprehensive resource can change the lives of caregivers and employers if given at the appropriate time.
“Having been through it myself,” says Levow, “This is the book I wish I had to help me through that whirlwind.” Levow believes that providing the book to employees early in the game can help prevent the physical and emotional toll that usually comes with suddenly becoming a caregiver, while also saving companies billions of dollars each year.
“Planning for elder years should be done sooner, rather than later,” she emphasizes. “It’s a difficult subject that has become prominent throughout the U.S. and Canada.” Childcare is no longer the difficult task to manage, its elder care.
"OMG! My Parents are Getting OLD!" is scheduled to be released at the end of 2012 from Launch Pad Publishing Inc.
