BABY BOOMERS—Sandwiched Between Retirement & Caregiving Front Cover

Baby Boomers—Sandwiched Between Retirement & Caregiving is the first and most complete how-to manual which addresses personal questions related to retirement, caring for elderly loved ones and taking care of one’s immediate family which may include adult children still living at home and perhaps even grandchildren.

In simple, easy-to-understand language Dr. Haymon guides readers thru this entire process including medical choices, end-of-life decisions, advance directives, possible living arrangements, and how to say good bye before and after the death of loved ones. She also helps readers plan for retirement including how to avoid unnecessary taxes, probate, and other culprits that could threaten individual nest eggs, and explores the importance of a dress rehearsal prior to retiring.

Personal and professional caregivers of all ages will refer to this invaluable resource over and over again!

Former first lady, Rosalynn Carter once said there are only four types of people in the world:

  • Those who have been caregivers
  • Those who currently are caregivers
  • Those who will be caregivers
  • Those who will need caregivers
