'Will You Still Love Me, Will You Still Need Me, When I'm 84?'

The 'sandwich generation' of consumers demands more information, more expertise and more options in their approach to senior lifestyle and care

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- As more than 7,000 leaders and providers in the field of aging gather at the Annual Meeting and Exposition of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) from October 21 - 24 in Orlando, Florida, to explore the future of aging services, WiseLife Press will introduce a first-of-its kind toolkit to help the convergent aging population understand and plan for senior lifestyle and care.

The so called "sandwich generation" or "graying baby boomers," including 35 million Americans over 65 in 2006, a number expected to double by 2030, are redefining aging itself through the way they live their lives and the fact that they have entrusted themselves to help care for their parents and other loved ones and make the best decisions for long term care.

A typical member of this "boomer" generation, Janet Gibson began a search for all the information available to her as she faced the reality of her aging mother's increasing needs. Sorting through library and Internet archives, information about program options, books and hundreds of resources on aging, she was astonished not to find a comprehensive guide -- all in one place -- to everything she wanted to know about planning for her mother's inevitable transitions through the aging process. So she created one, SeniVision: The New Outlook on Senior Lifestyle and Care (WiseLife Press, 2007)

A guide to assessing, planning, choosing long term care options and facilities, moving, changes and moving through death and closure, SeniVision provides guidance on navigating the sea of available information; finances, legal issues and advance directives; physical, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual health, understanding transitions, memory loss, Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease and preparing for death. Checklists and file folders to hold important documents in each category, and a collection of essential information from leading experts in the aging field make this interactive toolkit consumer-friendly and practical. Publishers Weekly describes SeniVision as "part book, part portfolio and part organizer ... designed as a three-ring binder so the sections can be periodically updated."

While experts congregate to discuss new trends in care and plan for the coming age wave, WiseLife Press' CEO and President, Barbara Rode and Executive Director Janet Gibson expect major organizations whose missions focus on aging, health care systems, hospitals and clinics, investment advisors, insurance companies, estate planning attorneys and social workers will want to know about this valuable new resource for their clients and communities.
