Letter from an alumnus about 'Aging Parents' Book Very Helpful

Date Posted: March 25, 2005

I was delighted to read that Virginia Morris, author of How to Care for Aging Parents, is a Princeton alum, Class of ’81 (Book Shorts, Feb. 23). Her comprehensive and very usable book was extremely helpful to me during the four-month period of my mother’s declining health and death in 2003.

After exhausting days trying to understand Mom’s medical status, arranging caregivers, dealing with family discord, boosting her spirits, etc., it was reassuring to consult the book for insightful, focused help in piloting a course through a very challenging period.

I have given or referred the book to many friends going through similar life transitions, and they also have found it invaluable.
