520    "In the next few years, 66 million Americans will be 
       caring for an aging parent. "Over eighty-five" is the 
       nation's fastest growing age group, a trend that keeps 
       growing as ten thousand Americans turn sixty-five every 
       day. The desire to help our elders navigate health issues 
       is clear and universal--how to assure proper care and a 
       good ending is not. Combining adroit storytelling skills 
       with expert advice, this book brings the reader into the 
       all-too-familiar scenarios facing our aging parents and 
       offers answers to questions we may not know to ask until 
       it's too late"--|cProvided by publisher.
