Comprehensive, clear, and easy-to-follow guide on facing those difficult situations such as housing changes and giving up the car keys. Author Viki Kind presented at a KCLS event in tandem with a local nursing conference and was extremely well-received. Her website www.kindethics.com provides invaluable weekly emailed tips for remote caregivers.

If you're a caregiver or a concerned family member this book is for you.
Excellent guide for prompting the right questions to ask and getting through the hard decisions one has to make in another's behalf.
