As we age, new issues confront us -- from where to live to who can provide care to how to avoid scams. Making the Golden Years Golden addresses problems like these and offers practical advice and tips to help navigate the senior years.

The author, Eva Mor, has worked with the elderly for more than 23 years in various settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, and as the head of an agency providing home care. Drawing on this experience, she provides a practical overview of the options available to seniors. Topics covered include caregiving, insurance, medication, illnesses, and annuities. Mor adds her personal perspective on each, providing an argument for universal health care and cautioning against fraud and scams. Chapters also include case studies of seniors Mor has worked with.

Appropriate for both seniors and caregivers, Making the Golden Years Golden provides a roadmap to the issues faced by seniors, with the added advantage of being written by someone with years of practical experience dealing with these issues.
