My Book - Elder Care Made Easier
“Elder Care Made Easier: Doctor Marion’s 10 Steps to Help You Care for an Aging Loved One” draws from her wealth of experience and knowledge to lay out a 10 step elder care plan for everyday individuals. By implementing one, two, or all ten steps, caregivers will quickly feel more at ease and better prepared to meet their elder care challenge.
This book is written in layman's terms and is especially intended for those who do not have the luxury of hiring a geriatric care manager. The material is upbeat, and it also includes an extensive appendix with a planner, workbook, and logbook for those who want to use it as a resource to track their elder’s health care needs.
