  •     This book is a welcome entry during these times of untold wealth and " boomer " concerns about aging parents and their own aging process . The author , Mr. Cassidy , is a former State Investigator for Medical Fraud . He brings his practical experience to this project and combines it with very practical advice to give the reader a good look at the problems that exist and ways that they can be dealt with . Our " sandwich generation " is facing unique life circumstances . Mr. Cassidy's book is a most valuable tool and should be used by both aging parents and adult children as they face up to these unique challenges .
  •     Now in an updated and expanded third edition, Elder Care: What To Look For, What To Look Out For! by Thomas M. Cassidy (formerly the Senior Special Investigator, New York State Attorney General's Office) is a must-read for anyone facing hard choices about the care of elderly relatives or associates. Offering stark warnings to guard against all-too-common fraud or maltreatment, chapters also cover such matters as long-term care insurance, assisted-living facilities, legal issues, health issues, nursing homes and hospices, and much more. A no-nonsense, extremely informative resource especially for lay readers in this day and age of a booming senior population.
  •     Thomas Cassidy the author of ELDER CARE is our son in whom we are very pleased and proud, He wrote a book that may help some of us, including family and friends, on how to cope in the late innings of our lives. No,it is not a bible on how to die. Rather the book is a friendly and informative guide on living our days with some level of peace of mind. His book is step by step advice on "What to look for, and what to look out for" in our final journey in life. It's a plan! The 1999 edition has been improved by updating information on World Wide Web & Internet Resources; Listing of Department of Health, and Attorneys General in each of the Fifty States, and at the Federal Level. Additionally, a twenty page comprehensive personal work-sheet and family history is provided in the last chapter of "ELDER CARE" Needless to say, my wife and I, his parents, Highly Recommend our son Tom's book: "ELDER CARE:What To Look For, What To Look Out For." Thank You! Hugh J.B. Cassidy with Elizabeth Meade-Cassidy
  •     6/10/99As a nursing instructor, I utilized "Eldercare" in gerontology rotations. I found the book to be extremely comprehensive re long term care for the elderly. It is applicable to professionals and lay persons alike. It is an enjoyable read and a book that should be on all human resources book shelves. The student's also found "Eldercare" an excellent reource for their practice.I also had the opportunity of having Mr. Cassidy speak to the students on eldercare issues. He is an excellent speaker who is thoroughly versed on isues of aging effecting all the helping professions. I felt honored to have him as a guest speaker and the student feedback was positive and affirming.
