Lissy Jarvik, Author, Gary Small, With Crown Publishers $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-517-56765-4
UCLA psychiatry professors Jarvik and Small address adult children of aging parents in this comprehensive guide personalized by case histories of their clinical patients. They offer much sensible advice on solving problems posed by the reversed roles. The authors record experiences of offspring dealing with fathers and mothers who need financial or emotional support, who are widowed or physically ailing. Suggestions for alleviating the strain on relationships between elderly parents and children are sympathetically presented, illustrated by questionnaires for readers to assess whether their handling of crises can be improved. The book also includes information on geriatric illnesses, drugs, nutrition, etc., and lists of organizations specializing in gerontology. (March)
