Abstract:

Witnessing the declining health of a parent, and the inevitable thoughts of mortality that accompany the process, can take a heavy emotional and physical toll--particularly if parents and children find it awkward to communicate their fears and needs to one another. To remove the boundaries and enhance these necessary dialogues, Susan Piver applies her thought-provoking question-and-answer format to The Hard Questions for Adult Children and Their Aging Parents. With 100 questions on topics ranging from the practical to the emotional, Susan makes it possible to have candid, comforting conversations that will have lasting benefits. The book is divided into categories, including questions for siblings only and for parents only, followed by specific questions regarding finances, health care, legalities and paperwork, housing, relationships, personal history, and spirituality--all designed to facilitate this delicate process and give all members of the family time for contemplation.
