Sorting through the surprisingly complex world of senior care can be overwhelming. That's why Paul and Lori Hogan wrote Stages of Senior Care—Your Step-by-Step Guide to Making the Best Decisions, a practical, comprehensive guide to help you make senior-care decisions for your aging parents based on their current needs and future desires. Stages of Senior Care provides tools to assess your loved ones' care requirements and illustrates how to calculate costs, avoid pitfalls, identify scams, and choose the right options now and into the future. Paul and Lori Hogan are Founders of Home Instead, one of the largest providers of non-medical, in-home care for seniors.

    I am taking care of my grandma who is 83, had brain surgery. I am 26 getting married. I moved in with her. Of course I have a problem when it comes to saying no. My family has been great for my grandma but not towards me. I haven't starting working yet but when I do, my family wants me to work a night shift so I can take care of her during the day. She went through depression and was giving up. My family was there but not there to help. I feel alone. My grandma wants me to put me first but that's hard when the rest of the family isnt. I am just looking for some kind of support. I don't sleep, I cry, and this is slowly tearing me down. When is enough?
