Helpful Score: 2
This book was well written and easily understood. It deals with people needing medical/emotional care, and includes reasons why people don't want to go to assisted living facilities or nursing homes. It really helped me understand some unknown things to look for when I helped locate an assisted living apartment for a friend of mine who had dementia. I read it at the perfect time (for my friend), so it would be a good read for children with aging parents, and really, for everyone. It also deals with end of life decisions.
