Aging well is achievable–if you know how. And I can teach you how in the 7 concise chapters in this book. You will learn how to avoid dementia; how to maximize your finances; how to document your end-of-life choices; how to modify a home for you to age in place; and how to age well with purpose and joy.
from the book: “There are many excellent books on home modifications for aging in place. There are books and more books on end-of-life issues. There are books and books and books on exercise! So why read this particular book? Read this book because it brings together these most important issues in a concise, useful way. Why get four or five books on these seven topics when you can use just this one? I have worked to bring the most relevant current information to you in a succinct, readable way.”

Sounds like a valuable resource. We look forward to reading it.
Thanks for commenting–it shows the website is working! I have to get up the cover art too.
