In their twilight years, people increasingly rely on friends and family to get through the day. In Indian homes, it is not unusual to see adult children sandwiched between parenting and caregiving obligations, with both young children and elderly parents in the house.

The Home Stretch is an empathetic, handy guide that seeks to simplify caregiving and equip readers with the tools
and guidance required to build a safer, happier and more comfortable life for the elders around them. From tips on
maintaining their health and independence to taking care of the bedridden, the book covers a wide range of topics
to meet the progressively complicated needs associated with caring for ageing loved ones.

A product of the author's years of caregiving experience and interactions with countless doctors, counsellors, senior
citizens and other family caregivers, this book has the ability to transform how we look at ageing and the aged.

 

Review

An invaluable guide for each one of us-at once educative and compassionate, born of the best of all teachers: serving those who cannot help themselves. -- Arun Shourie, Indian economist, journalist, author and politician.

'Over the next few decades, we will see a robust growth in the population of senior citizens in this country. This book provides some valuable insights about caring for the elders in our families during their sunset years. Caring of elders needs to go hand in hand with compassion, such that they still feel they have a voice, and they have a role to play in their family and society. Sanjay has shared some very valuable insights based on his very personal journey' -- Meena Ganesh, CEO, Portea Medical.
