    Edited by Myrtle Heery, Ph.D & Gregg Richardson, Ph.D.

    This significant new book has already received wide critical acclaim in its presentation of the personal and professional experiences of 16 contributing experts in medicine, psychology, gerontology, numerous psychotherapy modalities and several spiritual disciplines.

    The book brings a down-to-earth presence to topics including aging alone—and with uncertain health care—neurocognition, physical illness, ethical wills, caregiving, and money—and the feeling of impermanence.
