Dr. Haymon has also been pioneering the field of Caregiving for over twenty years. Her visionary book My Turn Caring for Aging Parents & Other Elderly Loved Ones-A Daughter’s Perspective (1996) was the very first book ever published in the United States on caring for aging parents.
Her latest book Baby Boomers—Sandwiched Between Retirement & Caregiving (2009) is the most comprehensive book on Caregiving. Dr. Haymon’s personal experience of caring for her mother and step-father, both victims of Alzheimer’s Disease, motivated her to combine her experiences with extensive research to provide others with answers she wished had been available to her.
