Summary
Are the Keys in the Freezer? is a blend of practical advice and the story of a family's search for the right care for their mother with dementia. This book is a must-read for families in the U.S. looking for resources and ideas about care facilities, hospices, finances and costs of care, advance directives and other topics related to managing the affairs of the elderly with dementia. A story of conflict and of light-hearted moments, Are the Keys in the Freezer? is the personal testimony of a family's struggle to navigate the confusing world of dementia care choices for their mother. The book is an insider's guide to unravelling medical, legal, and regulatory issues that affect the quality of care for loved ones who cannot make care decisions for themselves. The book's conversational tone turns complex issues into everyday language, making it an easy read for newcomers to the world of caring for people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia
