“Gerontologist and columnist Wendy Johnstone has hit the mark with her book Get your Eldercare Affairs in order, a “how to” book that doesn’t insult the intelligence and does stimulate thought – and helps us identify our own solutions.  Wendy stimulates curiosity about what to do.  What can we do to make it easier for our children when we need care or die?

While I was reading Wendy’s book, Get your Eldercare Affairs in order I kept thinking of the famous quote from George Bernard Shaw: The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. Wendy makes the point that we have to be very clear and specific about our needs, wishes and expectations.

Wendy talks about the caregiver, a critical player in this piece.  As a friend of people who are going through the caregiver role locally, I hear all the questions and frustrations. And each situation is a bit different from all the rest – Wendy offers a chance to personalize your experience. The planning organizer pages were great – they helped raise other questions. Sign in my credit union:  People don’t plan to fail; they fail to plan.  Wendy’s book helps with the planning part.”

“You are amazing! What I tried to do in 2 months, you did in 1 week. You’ve helped us navigate the system, made sense of Mom’s disease, and gave back her independence and control. Thank you for making such a difference in Mom’s life and giving us, her family, complete peace of mind.”
