This is a book that should be read before you need it. When The Time Comes is a wonderful guide with real life stories that will help you make those hard decisions in caring for a parent or loved one. Paula provides the reader with up to date information on services, Medicare, Medicaid, as well as organizations and websites. Perhaps, it may even give you the opportunity to open a dialogue with your parent about what their hopes are for the future and what their wishes may be. I went through this twice with my parents and still found new advice in Paula's book. I would recommend this book to anyone who may be facing the challenge of becoming a caregiver.

Buy this book. As the daughter of an 88-year old Alzheimer patient, I have read every book and article I could find on the topic of elderly parents; this one was the best by far. When I picked up this book, I was sad and fearful about the future for my mom. As I read it, my attitude quickly changed. These stories are deeply moving and meaningful. Author Paula Span's unfailing honesty transforms an unpleasant topic into a touching experience. Span confronts the real questions, the ones that other writers avoid or sugarcoat. If you have an elderly parent who needs your attention, this book will help you in countless ways. Even if you are not caring for an elderly parent, it is an inspiring book. I highly recommend it to every reader.
