Canadians are enjoying longer life spans and better health; by 2035, nearly one in four will be 65 or older.

Over the next decade it is estimated that approximately fifty million baby boomers across North America will take on the emotional and life-altering task of becoming caregivers for their aging parents.

In the tradition of Dropped Threads, Our Turn to Parent reaches out to the community of adult children most of them daughters who are destined to take on this role. It offers practical advice, shared experiences, insights and skills for dealing with extended families, spouses and children, as well as taking care of yourself. This indispensable guide will help people navigate the world of complex medical, legal and financial issues and emotional ones, too providing the tools they need to make decisions and feel confident that they are doing right by their aging parents. And, with stories from real lives, it also offers honest and personal anecdotes about surviving these trying times.
