How can you care for an aging parent without becoming a full-time home aide? What happens when you need to ensure an elderly loved one is being cared for, but giving up your own life and career isn’t an option?

These are the questions author Petra Weggel began asking herself when she suddenly found herself unexpectedly responsible for her parents. Living thousands of miles away from them, she couldn’t offer the hands-on attention other adult children gave out of a sense of duty. She also couldn’t ignore the reality that they needed help.

Through trial and error, Petra realized her role was that of a care organizer- someone in charge of managing two lives. Along the way she became fluent in elder care topics like living options, finances and legal considerations.

If you have ever wondered what will happen if your parent can no longer take care of themselves, or felt overwhelmed at the idea of giving up your own life to fill the role of caregiver, this is the book you need to read today!
