Art of Aging: A Christian Handbook by Howard Eyrich & Judy Dabler
The senior generation of today is finding itself caught between helping adult children and caring for elderly parents. Further, many are contemplating their own retirement and making plans for that season of their lives. This handbook is a valuable resource in answering the following questions: How is God involved in aging? How do I prepare to grow old? How do I grow old gracefully? How do I care for aging parents? How do I decide when to use a nursing home? How do I choose a nursing home? How do I access social help?
