Publisher's Summary

Everything you need to know about supporting ageing parents, from author and comedian Jean Kittson.

This warm and witty practical guide is a one-stop shop for information on how to support your ageing loved ones: how to protect their health and well-being, keep them safe and secure and enable them to be self-determining and independent for as long as possible. Full of expert advice and firsthand experience, this is your go-to resource to help you:

  • Navigate the bureaucratic maze while remaining sane
  • Understand what is needed for your elder's health and well-being and how to get it, especially in a medical emergency
  • Survive the avalanche of legal papers and official forms
  • Choose the best place for them to live - home, retirement village, residential aged care, or granny and grandpa flat - and help your elders relocate with love and respect

Compelled to discuss some of life's most confronting questions, Jean shares heartfelt stories and clear facts alongside wonderful cartoons from much-loved Australian cartoonist Patrick Cook.

Following on from her 2014 best seller, You're Still Hot to Me, a treatise on menopause, We Need to Talk About Mum & Dad is a guide to what happens when we become parents of our parents.

Humorous and helpful

Full of useful and recent information, well researched expert advice, real stories and some real humour. Listened to this in the middle of a family health crisis which is/was pretty tragic, and actually laughed out loud at a few points which surprised me. Recommended.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Audible Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
