AUTHOR BRIDGES THE INFORMATION GAP: AN OUTSTANDING LOOK AT EVERYTHING RELATED TO LONG-TERM CARE
ST. LOUIS, MO - Aug. 25, 2003 (Send2Press Newswire) -- Author Valerie
VanBooven RN, BSN, CMC is about to release her upcoming book, "Aging
Answers: Secrets to Successful Long-Term Care Planning, Caregiving, and
Crisis Management". Valerie is the national long-term care expert for
Assistguide.com, as well as a professional speaker, and professional
geriatric care manager. Her new book addresses all of the questions and
concerns that seniors, caregivers, and adult children of aging parents
"Our population is aging at an incredible rate. This is an issue that
frankly, we would rather avoid than discuss. This "information gap" has
put us in a position where families are constantly managing crisis,
instead of taking the time to plan ahead. This book addresses all of those
issues in a concise and efficient manner- something we all need in our
fast paced society", VanBooven states.
Although several books are on the market addressing elder care, "Aging
Answers" is written by a health care professional who has answered
literally hundreds of questions over the last few years. Valerie's
experience, and the experience of the families highlighted in the book
offer support and hope to others who are experiencing the same situations.
The book is divided into two parts. The first half is devoted to consumers
who need good information about planning ahead for their own long-term
care needs. The second half is devoted to families who are currently
caring for an aging parent or loved one. The "Aging Answers Rolodex" in
the back of the book provides contact information and websites where
families can find the help they need.
