Well-Known Speaker Liz Taylor Launches e-Book Series
"Aging Parents: Starting the Conversation" the First in a Six-Part Series
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 01, 2011
SeniorHomes.com today announced a partnership with award-winning journalist and speaker Liz Taylor, founder of Aging Well Consortium, in the release of a series of e-books entitled, “Aging Deliberately.” A free preview of the first volume, “Aging Parents: Starting the Conversation,” is available for immediate download, exclusively from the SeniorHomes.com website.
An informative insight into this powerful, expert-guided look at the difficult task faced by millions of adult children each and every day, the free excerpt alone is packed with useful advice for adult children of aging parents. “SeniorHomes.com is always happy to partner with organizations and individuals offering valuable expertise to those seeking answers about caring for the older generation,” says Chris Rodde, CEO of SeniorHomes.com. “Liz Taylor has been an expert writer and invaluable asset for our site since its inception, and we’re incredibly grateful for the expert advice she offers our clients.”
“Aging Parents: Starting the Conversation,” is the first in what will become a series of six e-books, each encompassing an in-depth look at a phase in the difficult transition that in many cases, must be led and initiated by an adult child of an aging parent. Liz Taylor recognizes what a difficult phase in life this is, both for the aging parent and adult children, spinning her years of expertise as a geriatric care manager, policy pioneer and nursing home fraud investigator into a conversational, down-to-earth tome full of practical advice on this difficult transition in life.
Liz Taylor, who coined the phrase “aging deliberately,” takes readers through the three rules of caregiving, partnering with your parents, learning who to trust and when to say””or do””nothing. She delves into the difficult questions plaguing the minds of every adult child, including what documents are essential for ensuring they have the right to make pertinent decisions.
While “Starting the Conversation” is applicable to all aging adults, the second e-book in the series, “Dementia Care: The Long Goodbye,” will delve more specifically into difficulties surrounding caring for a memory-impaired loved one.

Liz coined the phrase, “Aging Deliberately,” to express her firm belief that most of us age “accidentally,” without planning or forethought. Instead, she says, “We must face our aging head on, learning how to age on purpose–deliberately! Only then will we have some control over what happens to us.”
Aging Parents: Starting the Conversation
Liz Taylor’s first book, Aging Parents: Starting the Conversation, is the first volume in a six-part series that brings expert authority to the many issues of aging well, from dementia care to finding the right housing solutions.
Never in the history of the world have so many people lived so long, a trend that is likely to continue far into our future. This unprecedented longevity, far more than in earlier generations, is causing millions of adult children–often with their own children still at home or even with grandchildren in college–to become responsible for the well-being and care of their aging parents.
