(PRWeb via PRWeb) June 4, 2009 — Nurse-turned-lawyer, Carolyn L. Rosenblatt’s expertise on the use of financial protection for aging parents is currently featured on the Gilbert Guide, a leading Internet source on senior care issues.

Rosenblatt, of San Rafael, Calif., has spent a decade as a registered nurse and 30 years as an attorney and litigator , now counseling families on aging issues in collaboration with her psychologist husband, Dr. Mikol S. Davis.

For a growing number of families caring for aging parents, navigating the pros and cons of taking over handling an elderly parent’s money, or using the courts to take complete control over a parent can be daunting.

Rosenblatt leads family caregivers through the advantages and dangers of each option in the current Gilbert Guide issue, www.gilbertguide.com. The article is adapted from her book, “The Boomer’s Guide to Aging Parents.” Financial control questions are also answered in one of its nine individual mini-books, geared to specific topic areas and available
separately.

She is also available as a source for reporters with questions on stories about coping with the needs of aging parents.

Rosenblatt and Davis provide collaborative counseling for families, through http://www.AgingParents.com, on a
variety of aging issues, from navigating the health care bureaucracy, convincing an elderly driver to give up the car
keys, finding home health care aides, choosing nursing homes, and resolving family disputes over an elderly parent’s care. There is emphasis on preventing abuse of the elderly.

“The culture of being independent and the ingrained habits of not asking for help can truly be a source of conflict with their children when Mom and Dad begin to lose the ability to care for themselves,” Rosenblatt said. “Planning in advance and having the necessary, though difficult, conversations can do much to reduce conflict,” she said.

Testimonials by our readers
"Thank you for the article on the "grey area". It validated what I am currently going through with my Mother. It is so painful for me to go back and forth with her behavior. I just don't know what to do about the estranged sister who has exploited well over $50K of my mother's savings and my Mothers admitted " lack of "will power" to say no to her." Robert ________________________________ "I do want to thank you for the Webinar you offered.
