Parenting Your Parents: Support Strategies for Meeting the Challenge of Aging in the Family

By Bart Mindszenthy; Michael Gordon | Go to book overview

PRAISE FOR PARENTING YOUR PARENTS

This book, co-authored by one of our leading geriatricians, offers a unique and sometimes moving blend of information, insight, compassion, advocacy, and humour. It should be a valuable resource for families needing to help frail parents who have many things wrong at once, but who must deal with health care systems that largely prefer people to get sick with one illness at a time.

Kenneth Rockwood, MD, FRCPC Professor of Geriatric Medicine, Dalhousie University Past President, the Canadian Society of Geriatric Medicine

From my professional experiences I know that what people need is practical and understandable information. That is exactly what Parenting Your Parents is, and for me personally it has been invaluable in helping me to support my aging relatives. My hope is that my own children read it one day so I too can be the beneficiary of the advice.

Nancy Webb Vice-President, Public Affairs Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care

As a minister I come into contact with hundreds of people who are facing the struggles that Bart Mindszenthy and Michael Gordon speak about in Parenting Your Parents. I also faced these same issues with my own parents before they passed away. I have to say that the authors give not only timely advice, but practical, useful advice that can easily be understood and immediately applied. I should know; I used their advice with my own parents and have offered it to others in my capacity as minister of a large city church and counselling practice.

Dr. Rev. John Niles

Michael Gordon has combined his extensive experience as a physician caring for elderly patients with his warmth and humanity to create, along with his co-author Bart Mindszenthy, a unique book that will be a source of information, advice, and great comfort for anyone involved in the care of an aging parent.

Eliot A. Phillipson, MD Sir John and Lady Eaton Professor of Medicine Emeritus Past Chair, Department of Medicine, University of Toronto

I have recommended Parenting Your Parents to many of my faculty colleagues who are facing the challenge of caring for their aging parents. This book, which discusses these challenges eloquently, is a very valuable resource. The last person who borrowed my copy must have agreed, because he never returned it!

Anne Sclater, MD, FRCPC Professor and Chair of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland
