Overview

PLAN WHILE YOU CAN

Who takes their parents out of assisted living after six months? We do! And this book is about why we did that and how we set up 24/7 care-giving after down sizing, selling their home, and moving them in and OUT of the facility of their choice.

In 1992 our parents were in their 70s. Some symptoms of dementia had surfaced. We had a family meeting to let them share their thoughts and feelings about their future as they aged. Legal documents were put in place with the blessing of the family and a promise was made that we would keep them together. We were ready for any crisis. They lived into early 90s and died within 69 days of each other.

Are you struggling to decide if you CAN or WANT to care for your parents to the degree that we did?

Armed with some facts and stories of how we dealt with the issues of dementia and aging, you can make that decision without any pressure or guilt.

Would you like your children to know what they need to consider NOW while you are mentally fit to share your preferences and put the Legal, Logical, and Loving things in place? Prepare for any crisis.

Find out what can be Done-With-Dementia s you can give back to your parents without any regrets.

If you wait... it may be too late!

About the Author

Linda McKendry (Gamble) knows her calling in life. It's "to take people, places and things to their next level." And in doing that, she too goes to her next level. Over the years her "active imagination" as her mother put it, has stood her in good stead in every situation and through every season of her life. Whether in her personal, business, or spiritual life, if she isn't being paid to take something to its next level, she will just volunteer! The list is too long, so if you really want to know some details, you can go to www.todaysdisplays.com, or www. visiquad.com, or www.done-with-dementia.com.
She's not competitive so everyone wins, but she loves a good challenge and a problem to solve.

She currently runs three businesses at a senior's pace, enjoys playing piano, and face painting, while being a wife, mother, and grand mother. Her father stayed active well into his senior years, and declared "I'm not re-tired. I'm re-treaded!" She is her father's daughter. Life is full and she gives her parents a lot of credit for putting the drive into her to never quit, keep going, and do as much as you can with what you have. Her grand mother, an immigrant from Europe, always said she would "Die vorking, mit mine boots on." And she did. Linda reminds us that there are only two kinds of people. Those who rust out and those who wear out. Guess which one she is!
