"I was a Nurse but now this was my Dad and he wanted to die in his own home. Our lives had gone full circle. How quickly my sorrow gave way to peace when Dad looked in my eyes and said. 'Thank you,' before he slipped away. In this book, Anne gives all of us the knowledge to gain that same peace for our parents."-Donna Martin, RN, home care supervisor.
Growing old should neither signal the end of one's productivity nor represent a threat to leave one's home. Yet most individuals rarely consider their choices or discuss long term care until mired in medical crisis. Home care, a viable, cost effective option, is seldom promoted. All that's Familiar offers a practical, hands-on guide demonstrating how in-home care provides assistance with daily living tasks, enabling individuals to remain in the familiar comfort of their own home.
