The Essential Eldercare Handbook for Nevada by Kim Boyer, Mary Shapiro

The senior years can be daunting, for spouses, children, other caregivers, and seniors themselves. Too often a sudden crisis leaves a family unprepared and feeling helpless. Chronic illnesses and limited funds can present difficult and emotional choices regarding care or housing. Rules and resources vary from state to state. Everyone can use help from experienced professionals in understanding them. Boyer and Shapiro provide Nevada-specific information - medical, legal, and financial - on the wide range of problems that arise during the elder years. Case studies show how a typical family copes with troubles such as failing health or financial cares and what options they have. This guide will help any Nevada resident plan for their own senior years and take care of ageing parents, spouses, and other loved ones.


Boyer and Shapiro include wonderful and useful advice while encompassing all the new information necessitated by the Affordable Care Act. Family caregivers and gerontology professionals in Nevada will find this to be the essential guide to eldercare. -- Kenneth J. Doka, professor of gerontology at the College of New Rochelle and author of Counseling Individuals with Life Threatening Illness
