Their new book, HOW TO AGE IN PLACE: Planning for a Happy, Independent, and Financially Secure Retirement, is the first authoritative and comprehensive guide “aging in place”–a burgeoning movement for those who don’t want (or need) to rely on assisted living or nursing home care–which allows seniors to spend their later years living comfortably, independently, and in their own home and/or community. Library Journal calls it one of the Best Books for 2013: “An excellent much-needed resource for readers exploring their options as they approach retirement age.”
Robert Bornstein and Mary Languirand are also the authors of When Someone You Love Needs Nursing Home Care and Healthy Dependency: Leaning on Others Without Losing Yourself , both available from HarperCollins.
