“By Families” Book

The By Families, For Families Guide to Assisted Living: A Step-by-Step Guide to Evaluating and Transitioning to an Assisted Living Community

Assisted living doesn’t have to be just the next place for Mom and Dad.  It can be the foundation for many years of fantastic memories.  Assisted living author and expert Ryan Malone shares with you the secrets only revealed by someone who has made assisted living a positive and rewarding experience for his mother and family.

The By Families, For Families Guide to Assisted Living provides the inside tips, tricks and secrets to evaluating and transitioning a loved one to assisted living.  Based on real experiences Ryan had while transitioning his mother after a stroke, the book tells you everything you need – from choosing a facility, to managing the staff, to ensuring the first 30 days are filled with smiles.

A powerful and easy-to-apply workbook is included and serves as your companion and notebook during this transition.  The workbook offers step-by-step exercises to help you make the best decisions quickly.  Included with the workbook is a sample advanced healthcare directive and a typical assisted living residency agreement – both critical in negotiating your loved one’s first rental agreement.
