If you're a member of the Boomer generation and currently caring for an aging parent, or have in the past, this book is meant for you. The Elder Care Underground is that murky place where we navigate the pitfalls of doctors' offices, nursing homes, hospital ERs and trips to Wal-Mart. It's also populated with disappearing beds and the Mexican Mafia, a poinsettia that pines for the fjords, and Vicks VapoRub as a magic elixir. It's Alice in Wonderland looking for the key to the physician's restroom and a wolf showing up at the ophthalmologist's office. Hmm...maybe you had to be there. But since you weren't, sit back and enjoy the vicarious thrills of the journey through the eyes and hard-of-hearing ears of the author and her ninety-something mother. These true tales originally appeared in Melissa Guensler's blog, "I Tried Being Tasteful...But The Strain Was Too Much For Me," where she writes about the often humorous challenges she faced caring for her elderly mother after moving her to Texas from California. Hold on to your bra straps. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
