In My Hands: My Parents' Journey to the Other Side - An Eldercare Guide for Adult Children
By: Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co, LLC
"In My Hands: My Parents' Journey to the Other Side" is not about taxes, but about the eventuality of death and how to prepare when elderly parents reach the final stages of life.
The book tells the story of the author's 18-month "Journey to the Other Side" with her parents, which taught her how to handle their finances, get them proper medical care, and make the really hard decisions, all while holding down a full-time job and spending time with her husband.
Says Barbara Lorello: "It was always my plan to assist my parents in their golden years, but I never really thought about what that would entail when I decided to move back to New England from North Carolina. I thought it would be as simple as enjoying some weekend family meals, doing the odd chore around the house, and reminiscing about old times. Little did I know that my parents were completely unprepared for their final years and that we would have to make it all up on the fly."
She hopes her book will help other families facing these same decisions. "I pray others can find some inspiration from my determination to help my parents die with dignity while being surrounded by people they love."
About the Author: First-time author Barbara Lorello grew up in Old Lyme, Connecticut, a quintessential shoreline New England town. She now lives in Middletown, Connecticut, with her husband, Gene, and their four cats.
"A topic long overdue. This insightful book teaches us what we need to know when our loved ones are facing their final days. We are especially proud to be the publisher of this important book," said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
