Details

The baby-boomers are picking up their pensions. They are anticipating much more from their later years, but for most of them ageing will come as a shock. They may have assumed they would die before they got old; instead they are finding they have survived to face changes in their physiology, social circumstances, relationships and finances for which they are unprepared. How to Handle Later Life is the result of 15 years of unsparing, independent, UK-wide investigation. It reveals what works, what doesn’t, and how to navigate the pitfalls which frequently confound those seeking care and support. The author, Marion Shoard, an award-winning writer, first became involved in the choices that confront older people when her mother went blind and developed dementia. Acclaimed for her pioneering work in the environment, she has switched her focus and produced a comprehensive, straight-talking – and essential – guide to later life.
