Senior Drivers! Your future is in jeopardy. A disturbing situation is developing in the United States. Since people are living longer, the number of drivers over 65 is escalating three times as rapidly as the general driving population. Older people have difficulty concentration, shorter attention spans and failing vision among other ailments. Unfortunately this results in frequent driving mishaps, sometimes with catastrophic results. Taking away their driving privileges would deprive them of their self esteem and independence. This could happen if they continued to have accidents caused by their propensity to get distracted easily and lose concentration. Some states have already enacted laws requiring re-exams for seniors. No doubt many more will follow. Driving slower in traffic is not the answer. This could cause accidents. Driving too fast would be worse since a person’s attention span and reaction time deteriorate with age. It does not matter how skillful he or she once were, aging diminishes skill in almost all areas including the operation of a motor vehicle. Driving today has become more complex as many more cars are on the road. When seniors started to drive, turnpikes and expressways were non existent. After observing the avoidable accidents seniors were having, and realizing how their ranks were exploding, I decided to write “The Senior Driver’s Survival Guide” – subtitled What You Must Know to Protect Your Driving Privileges. Its contents can enable older drivers to drive with a more acute awareness and help them to be better drivers in their “Golden” years. It is an important book which has the power to change and save lives.

The Real Truth About Aging is a comprehensive and well-written book which should be helpful to the general public and health professionals alike.-David Satcher, MD., PhD, Sixteenth Surgeon General of the United StatesI was getting frustrated searching on the internet for information about a particular type of hip fracture, when I gave up and went to open The Real Truth About Aging and it opened right to the page where there were a series of drawings of the location of different types of hip fractures that can be such an important source of disability for older people. This book is chock full of useful information, like taking a look at nursing homes from all angles: what do the patients think? Or the staff? Are nursing homes REALLY understaffed? Why are older people on too many prescription medications? This book goes beyond the usual fluff of ''aging gracefully'' books and provides real information that you can use.-J. Douglas Bremner MD, Author of Before You Take That Pill: Why The Drug Industry May Be Bad For Your Health, is also Professor of Psychiatry and Radiology at Emory University School of MedicineNeil Shulman is a multi-talented author whose writings touch everybody, from the youngest to the oldest, and who can deliver important information on serious topics in a very readable and accessible way.-Daniel S. Blumenthal, MD, MPH, Professor and Chair, Department of Community Health & Preventive Medicine, Associate Dean for Community Programs, Morehouse School of MedicineIt is refreshing to find a book that is honest and courageous enough to fly against the ''happy-talk'' genre of books for the elderly. I''ve never seen anything to match the straight-talking authenticity that explodes off of every page.-Barry Farber, Veteran Radio Talk Show HostAs life expectancy continues to increase, millions of seniors are living well into their eighties and nineties. With the aging of the baby boomers, the population of senior citizens will swell dramatically in the coming decades. These statistics will inevitably draw more attention to the aging process. What should middle-aged people expect as they grow older? What should caregivers of the elderly know about normal aging? How can we all stay healthy despite the limitations of age?In this authoritative, user-friendly guide, three experts in geriatric medicine provide the latest evidence on: healthy aging, an understanding of the modern and often confusing health care system, and information about the medical issues affecting frail older adults.They begin with the basic facts of aging, distilling the current research on the underlying molecular mechanisms, organ system changes, and associated disease risks that occur as our bodies get older. They devote separate chapters to preventative medical testing, so-called anti-aging therapies, vitamin and herbal supplements, exercise, and medication problems.In the next section, they present an overview of the American healthcare system, from making the most of a doctor''s visit and an explanation of various healthcare professionals involved in elder care to guidelines for choosing a nursing home or assisted care facility. They also discuss the health risks of a stay in the hospital, including antibiotic-resistant infections, temporary delirium, and bedsores.In the following section, they tackle the challenges of caring for a frail senior, covering a range of issues from falls, osteoporosis, and infections, to sleep difficulties, depression, and dementia. A chapter is also devoted to the last days of life and how hospice can help.The authors also provide a section on the need to plan ahead. Among the questions considered are: When should an advance directive be written? How much money will be needed for the elder years? When should a senior give up driving?At a time when geriatric medicine is becoming a rare specialty and doctors receive little training in this area, the wealth of information compiled in this outstanding volume is invaluable.

As a result of the aging of our population and the fact that Americans are living longer than ever before, more Americans are developing chronic illnesses that require long-term care, and we all face increasingly difficult challenges and more transitions in our lives than ever before. One of the most difficult transitions that Americans must face for themselves and their loved ones is the "final move" - a transition that's made by over 40% of the American population - the move to a nursing home. Rich, poor, or somewhere in between, 99 percent of Americans can't afford to ignore the potentially catastrophic costs of nursing home care and other types of long-term care, such as assisted living and in-home care. In fact, long-term care costs are so high that 70 percent of Americans become impoverished within a year of entering a nursing home. Chances are that someone close to you has lost their dignity and their life savings by winding up broke in a nursing home. This Nursing Home Survival Guide is designed to provide much-needed information and answers to the important questions you will encounter as you go through this challenging transition. The Nursing Home Survival Guide is the definitive guide for helping you protect your loved ones who need nursing home care by preserving their dignity, quality of life, and financial security. This book provides invaluable information and guidance to families dealing with the possibility of nursing home care and struggling to make the best decisions for themselves or their loves ones. If you're a Baby Boomer or older, this book also helps you gain the peace of mind of knowing that there are ways to not outlive your money. Author Evan Farr is the creator of the Living Trust Plus Asset Protection System used by dozens of Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorneys around the country, and is widely recognized as one of the foremost experts in the nation in the field of Medicaid Asset Protection and related Trusts. A nationally-renowned Best-Selling author and frequent educator of attorneys across the U.S., Evan is known as the "expert to the experts," having educated tens of thousands of attorneys across the country, and now in this book is using his mastery of the subject to educate consumers about the ever-changing landscape of nursing home care in America and, most importantly, how to get the best care and how pay for that care without going broke. In 25 easily readable and understandable chapters, Mr. Farr covers diverse topics ranging from the basics -- what is a nursing home, what is long-term care, what is the caregiver's role, how do you select the best facility, what does Medicare cover, how to get the best long-term care insurance -- to the advanced, such as Veterans Aid & Attendance Planning, Medicaid Asset Protection, Pre-Need Medicaid Planning, and Medicaid Crisis Planning. Along the way he provides a valuable Nursing Home Evaluation Tool, answers many Frequently Asked Questions about Medicaid, covers the important topic of Why Medicaid Planning is Ethical, and provides valuable Medicaid Case Studies showing the application of some of the most common Medicaid Asset Protection strategies to real-life situations. This book also has chapters on Moving your Loved One, How to Get The Best Possible Care, The Rights of Nursing Home Residents, Recognizing Abuse & Neglect, What to do if You Suspect Abuse or Neglect, Estate and Incapacity Planning, and How to Find the Best Lawyer.
