"Our modern systems of eldercare have generally failed to emphasize the responsibilities of children to their elderly parents, yet the honor of parents as commanded in the fifth commandment must include this care of the elderly, according to our Lord’s words in Matthew 15:4-5. Every one of us should be asking ourselves in Jesus’ words, “Is there anyplace where we have made the commandment of God of none effect, by our traditions?” (Matt. 15:6)."
This book is a must read for anyone who is presently caring for a loved one or who may in the future. It is both professionally and endearingly written with a wealth of information. The material in the Appendices is especially valuable.

Marcia's down to earth style of sharing her experiences of caring for elderly family members in her home was heart warming and encouraging to us in our own similar situation. I already knew some of what she shared through my own "on the job training," but also learned quite a few new "tricks of the trade" from Marcia, especially learning to address issues in ways that maintain respect for my elder, and several other practical tips about managing medications, documents, and finances. The appendices giving help with organizing documents and a "go bag" for doctor visits were especially helpful. I plan to give copies to my siblings who are also providing eldercare in their homes.
The prospect of caring for an elderly family member may look akin to rough dental work, but Marcia Washburn reveals instead the tenderness and love that is nurtured as we care for those who need our help in the final chapter of their life’s journey. If it’s time for you to care for your elderly loved one, Marcia offers advice from God’s word and her own journey to encourage and enable you in your own journey honoring and caring for your loved ones.
