Item Description...
Older adults face many post-retirement adjustments, as do their families. Through interviews, research, and commentary, Ruth Fowler explores the powerful emotional connections between aging parents and their adult children. As We Grow Old examines such topics as post-retirement depression and anxiety, physical illness, grief, decisions about assisted living, and building quality communication. Fowler uses the Christian faith as a resource and guide for readers as they are encouraged to face the issues of aging with candor and grace. The voices of both generations are heard with clarity as they try to do what is right for each other and for themselves.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The age of Caregivers  Jun 21, 2006
The generation of the baby boom is embarking upon the care of elderly parents. By 2030, 66 million elderly will reside in the United States, more than double the 1980 figure. This book strives to show common problems that older parents and their adult children face, and addresses spiritual gifts, life experiences, and the contribution older parents bring to their family, community and culture. Fowler, a pastor in Port Dickinson, New York, uses statements by people, which adds realism to the book.

Topics addressed include depression, anxiety, grief, and medical, financial and legal issues. Our society has also attached more value to earned income activity; Fowler addresses leisure and the values of volunteerism. The individual stories present both the problems and constructive solutions to retirement. For instance, one retired farmer created a large garden and fed many neighbors. Often the solutions to anxiety are simple and sensible.

Very systematic in her approach, Fowler has created an easy-to use source that can serve to improve interaction between adult children and their aging parents, a course book for churches or a devotional, with prayers concluding the chapters.
