A Place in Time

Care Givers for Their Elderly

Book - 1993
Rate this:
A Place in Time tells the personal stories of normal people - grandchildren, children, and spouses - who have chosen to care for their aging and fragile relations. In a style reminiscent of Studs Terkel, Tom Koch has collected these narratives on the front line of the battle for senior care. From Toronto, Canada, to Honolulu, Hawaii, he has met with, listened to, and recorded the experiences of a group of people who care for ailing senior relatives at home. This is what it is like, they say, to be with and to love another who is simultaneously old and ill.
