Hay House I CAN DO IT! Conference – Book Signing
What an absolute JOY it was for me to be a FEATURED AUTHOR through Balboa Press, sharing in the opportunity to promote our written word through this prestigious conference. I loved every minute of being in Vancouver, Canada meeting those who resonate with Coping with Un-cope-able Parents: LOVING ACTION for Eldercare. Enjoy my precious photo from the event!

Coping with Un-cope-able Parents: LOVING ACTION for Eldercare
Thank you to www.coffscoastadvocate.com.au for the review! How rewarding it is to see “A timely book to address the explosive eldercare crisis” reach readers in Australia. The nod as to navigating “this hotbed of parental unrest” is appreciated.
Talk about a contentious subject! I thank Michael Zak for being willing to tackle it in AOL Autos via How To Tell An Elderly Relative It’s Time To Stop Driving. You’re invited to share my story concerning my 89-year-old recalcitrant father, whom I lovingly call “Bill The Truck Driver” at http://autos.aol.com/article/how-to-tell-an-elderly-relative-its-time-to-stop-driving/

If you’re curious about 6 things no one says about eldercare, then go here for The StarPhoenix article that includes the strategy of surrender amongst its unconventional insights:
Thanks to the efforts of Allison St. Claire, my quiz on how to tell if you have impossible elderly parents was picked up by http://go60.us/. Love their slogan: “Hear us roar”! Check out their rich web site which is chock-full of resources on advocacy, caregiving, genealogy, grandparenting, health and more.
How rewarding it was to be the featured cover story within Health, Wellness & Safety magazine: “Life purpose coach launches new book to help today’s sandwich generation deal with obstinate aging parents”. In the article, I grant full permission toward those contending with the grueling marathon of eldercare to feel ALL their feelings.
Those in the “Sandwich Generation” contending with unremitting aging parental care need practical strategies beyond the merely clinical or regulative.
