This is the updated and expanded edition of the book that first came out in 2007. I had read the original but was very glad of the excuse to re-read it, The last three chapters seem new and are really worth having. I think any Christian who has elderly parents that they are involved in caring for will find this a very valuable book. It's encouraging, practical, Christ centred and an easy read! You could even lend it to a non-believer struggling with the issues to help give a new perspective and to share your faith.
Ann Benton writes from the experience of having cared for her father-in-law. The book covers many practical issues that will be faced as good ideas for helping at whatever level of commitment to this task we can give.
