This book at first blush seems only useful for Americans in the American system of Probate. Wrong! True that is the specific audience. But, worldwide any person who is caregiver to a parent needs to at least look at what happened to me and try to avoid letting your countries’ probate laws drive you into poverty. Had I had his book when I entered into the full time caregiving of my mother, what happened to me would not have happened to me! Plain and simple.
Caregivers under siege!: A caregivers self defense manual
by Tito Abao Chloe Atkins (Illustrator)
A true handbook for the family member caregiver, developed from my own horrible experience, I describe to you thru four case histories of adult children of elderly parents facing nearly insurmountable roadblocks: legal, financial, emotional, foibles of human nature with respect to greed and avarice coming from sources you would least expect to display these deadly sins . I describe what can go wrong and then how to defend against the inevitable. This book confronts at least ten important situations that will bedevil you and their solutions……..any one solution is worth the price to the book. You will find out how to chose a lawyer to draw up your Will , what documents to have drawn up and what they should say and cover and much more. Ask yourself this question: Do you want to be a 70 year-old fighting for your economic life??!!
