A Review of Holding the Net

By  |  0 Comments

In this very personal story, Melanie Merriman shares her struggle to care for her very independent aging mother after the death of her father. In this well written real life saga of change, triumph and challenge Melanie gives the reader inside access to her new normal.

This is definitely a book to pick up if you are facing the possibility of changing the dynamics of the parent- child relationship or are already doing so. Holding the Net offers practical details about the effects of aging on the body and mind, living arrangements for older people, health care decisions, and surviving rehab through the eyes of one deeply entrenched in the process. Filled with sage advice, tears and moments of laughter it will provide a healing balm to the reader.
