Whether you’re already going through it or are just in for it eventually, Pam Carey takes you on an often-hilarious roller coaster ride through her own experiences with aging parents who still had their marbles. And she uses it to illustrate her 49 rules for your survival as the “kid.” Sooner or later, it could happen to you! Anyone who has had to care for elderly parents will see their own situations reflected in this witty yet practical guide to surviving the ordeal.
Pam has generously offered to gift her book Elderly Parents with all their Marbles: A Survival Guide for the Kids. Your comment also enters you into the Grand Prize and Bonus Prize drawings.
Pamela graduated with a B.A. from Colby College and an M.A. from Columbia University Teachers College.
