1 Review
The only book of its kind that answers the many questions Seniors & their caregivers have about the many complex assistance programs & topics important to Seniors--from Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Hill-Burton Free Hospital Care, & Veterans' Benefits to consumer rights, employment, housing, health & medicine, insurance, home care, nursing homes, funerals...& more, including an invaluable summary of financial perks for Seniors. Dr. Daniel Thursz, President, National Council on the Aging, calls it "an indispensable aid in finding the way to needed services & assistance available to our Seniors & their caregivers." The book was selected by the Library of Congress/National Library Service to be transcribed in both braille & recorded form for distribution throughout the nation to blind & physically handicapped individuals. "If you've ever tried to get to a federal, state or county agency for help, benefits or services, you know it can sometimes be like going through a maze. Ken Skala tells you how to navigate that maze in his AMERICAN GUIDANCE FOR SENIORS. It's a truly complete compilation of information for older people & their caregivers."-- Modern Maturity, AARP.
