We Need to Talk About Mum & Dad

by Jean Kittson

Your practical guide to the perils & pleasures of supporting ageing parents

Publish Date
March 2020

Everything you need to know about supporting ageing parents, from author and comedian Jean Kittson.
This warm and witty practical guide is a one-stop shop for information on how to support your ageing loved ones: how to protect their health and wellbeing, keep them safe and secure, and enable them to be self-determining and independent for as long as possible.
Full of expert advice and first-hand experience, this is your go-to resource to help you:
Navigate the bureaucratic maze while remaining sane
Understand what is needed for your elder's health and wellbeing and how to get it, especially in a medical emergency
Survive the avalanche of legal papers and official forms
Choose the best place for them to live - home, retirement village, residential aged care, or granny and grandpa flat - and help your elders relocate with love and respect.
Compelled to discuss some of life's most confronting questions, Jean shares heartfelt stories and clear facts alongside wonderful cartoons from much-loved Australian cartoonist, Patrick Cook.
Following on from her 2014 bestseller, You're Still Hot to Me, a treatise on menopause, We Need to Talk About Mum and Dad is a guide to what happens when we become parents of our parents.
