The next time some well-meaning person tells me that I need to take care of myself, I'm going to say, "You're right why don't you come and stay with my mother for a few hours so I can get out?" Taking Care Of Mom: What I Learned That May Help You Help Your Aging Parent is F. N. Rosenstock's story of how her mother was abused in a nursing home, misdiagnosed by medical practitioners, and prescribed wrong medications, all of which caused immediate and long-term deterioration in her mother's physical, emotional, and mental health. When she realized she had to take control of her mother's healthcare and sort through the good and the bad, her life changed forever. Read how she learned to navigate the maze of elderly healthcare in America and benefit from what one daughter learned about taking care of her aging mother. This book is unlike others written about this subject because it is a realistic look at taking care of an aging parent authored by a hands-on, caregiving daughter, not a writer interviewing clinicians. No practitioners were interviewed. If you have an aging parent, take care of an aging parent, or intend to grow old yourself, this book is pertinent for you. Remember, taking care of an aging parent isn't for wimps!

Sometimes, life takes you places you don’t want to go. Dementia and Alzheimer’s is a journey no one wants to take, yet life doesn’t give us a choice. Author Mike Glenn's mom didn’t want to be sick, and while she couldn’t overcome the devastation of disease, she wasn’t going down without a fight. She fought the illness, denying its presence. She fought the doctors, “Who were these idiots anyway?” And she fought him, “How come you think you’re in charge now?” Coffee with Mom is a book about a mom's fight with dementia and the struggle of a son who wanted to help but didn’t always know how. Most of their conversations—and sometimes battles—happened during morning coffee. This book isn’t about knowing all of the answers. It is one son’s journey with his mom—a mom with Alzheimer’s and a son who did the best he could, and who wrote this story in hopes that you’ll find a few laughs for your journey, realize you’re not alone, and find the courage to do the best you can. So, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and join us on the journey. You’ll find yourself in the laughter and tears of not knowing what to do next and making a decision that you hope works out, knowing it’s the best you can do in the moment. In the end, that’s all that matters. “Do the best you can” is all love requires.

In the afternoon, we went to the Salvation Army warehouse to help wrap gifts for children in need. Mom and I enjoyed our afternoon. I put Moms hand in place to hold the paper, and I would hurry to get the tape on before she lost grip. Mom repeatedly asked, Who are the presents for? I repeatedly said, They are for children and families in need. Mom was happy all over again. On the way home, I decided to stop at the health food store. I only needed a couple of items, and there was a parking space close to the store. Mom said she was too tired to go in and wanted to wait in the car. I agreed, and it would be quicker for me to go in alone. She was buckled in her seatbelt and hadnt yet remembered how to unbuckle it. I was confident Mom would be fine. I locked her in the car and told her I would be back in five minutes. I grabbed the items I needed, peeked out the window, saw Mom in the car, and proceeded to the checkout. There was one customer ahead of me. Checkout went fast, and I rushed out to the car. Mom was gone! I panicked like never before. I wanted to scream. My mind raced. What should I do? Should I call the police? I cried, Where did Mom go?
