by Lorraine (Lorrie) Morales

Practical, conversational and authentic, this timely book by Lorraine Morales, is a must-read for the increasing number of people with aging parents. The book partners Lorrie’s journey and real-life stories with essential facts, take-aways, and practical advice to help caregivers and their loved ones make realistic, knowledgeable, and simple decisions before they’re in a crisis.

We Can Do This! offers Lorrie’s personal story to help others realize that planning for later years in life can be a relatively stress-free process. A tribute to her parents and a guide to all those struggling with the “What do I do now?” questions associated with aging parents, We Can Do This! is one of the new generation of books in health care and senior communities containing indispensable information for all readers.

Blackie "I'm amazed and impressed by the range and depth of the content you've gathered, the practicality and the heart of it, how you've given equal attention to being useful and kind to readers who are navigating the complex and challenging waters of caregiving. The amount of work and care you've put into this book is evident and palpable." — Jen Violi - author "With the realization that our parents are aging comes the fear of what’s to come. Fear of the unknown. How will we navigate this stage of family life? Can we plan for success? We Can Do This! answers Yes! and provides adult children with the tools to organize and execute for success. The book is full of pertinent information and resources, steps and practical tips. It’s readable and doable. Lorrie gets you off to a good start and brings you across the finish line a winner, You can do this!" —Dick Edwards, Retired Mayo Clinic Eldercare Specialist Author and Presenter of Mom, Dad...
