Psychologists Languirand and Bornstein (When Someone You Love Needs a Nursing Home, Assisted Living or In-Home Care) penned this guide after concluding that there was “no comprehensive, user-friendly book” that addressed postretirement living, which may mean remaining in one’s own home or moving to a new residence where one can live (and age) as independently as possible. In easy-to-navigate chapters, the authors cover topics including finances (IRAs, annuities); services (health care and accessible shopping); and housing options (including how to “retrofit” for future needs). While part one (“Making It Work”) focuses on the nuts and bolts of setting a stage for secure retirement, part two (“Making It Count”) presents options for retirees, such as taking a course, volunteering, or even writing a book. Although the book’s tone is cheerful, readers should be prepared for frank discussions about dementia, hospice, assisted living, and “the D word.” Older readers will find a wealth of practical suggestions from the authors—a couple who, nearing retirement age themselves, amicably confess to having given up spicy wings and to taking a “tumble” while out conducting their own neighborhood “walkability” test.
