"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."

"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."
