"An invaluable resource... Gillick knows the system inside and out and is brilliant at making complex systems easy to understand. If you've read her other books (which I recommend you do) you'll recognize her narrative style, which reads like advice from a caring and well-informed friend."

"A knowledgeable, useful guide that will help caregivers navigate the complicated territory of medical care for their family member. An experienced physician who is well-versed in policy issues, Dr. Gillick has been a champion of family caregiving involvement."

"While caring for my beloved mother during her last three years, I learned that teaching Geriatrics is a lot easier than being a caregiver. I wish I had had this book to help. Dr. Gillick has provided caregivers with a comprehensive resource that will be both understandable and useful."

"Dr. Gillick offers a great resource for millions of dedicated caregivers. She displays a rare ability to translate medical lingo into useful advice for those who care for aging family members. This book offers both a big picture and specific tools to help people be the best caregivers they can be."

"This book will be a godsend for the millions of people who are now caregivers and the many millions more who are entering this role in the years ahead. Covering a wide scope, it is indeed encyclopedic, but it is easy to find what you need and reads like an open conversation with a good friend who happens to know the questions you should ask and how to find the answers."

"Muriel Gillick has long been a brilliant thought leader in the field of geriatrics. In reassuring, user-friendly prose, she has taken a brilliant approach to the challenge of looking after a beloved elder and arranging for their medical care in the final decade or two of life. This is the book that family caregivers have been waiting for."
