Got a family fight on your hands? Anxious and aggravated by a sibling or two who just doesn't get it when it comes to caring for your parent? If you are overwhelmed by family conflicts about aging parents or other loved ones, this little book is for you.
Money can be a sticky issue for families, especially when one is faced with the idea of taking over control of an elder's checkbook. Handling money competently requires the ability to pay attention to details, keep track of expenditures, and to be aware of what one has to spend. When our aging parents begin to "slip" in these areas, adult children can become confused about who has the right to do what.
Find the answers in this minibook, which draws from healthcare, legal, and psychological principles. It provides advice on how to approach the elder to try to work out agreements about driving, as well as a five step plan, including a last resort of using legal means to take the keys away from an elderly driver who is a threat to the safety of others as well as himself or herself.
