Summary
Based on the author's vast personal experience of spending unusually long hours daily at three nursing homes with her bedridden, comatose mother for nearly four and one-half years, until she took her back home for the final eight months of her life, this book deals with the advantages and disadvantages of care alternatives, such as caring for a bedridden or ambulatory person at home by oneself; the hiring of home help; adult day care; assisted living facilities; residential care facilities; foster homes; and hospice
