An articulate author and home-care labor spokesperson says more caregivers will be needed for the huge increase in aged people we'll soon have. Narrating with clarity and compassion, Emily Woo Zeller pulls listeners into the audiobook's personal stories and invites them to consider the challenges and detailed solutions offered. Sounding concerned and knowledgeable, she connects in a special way with the author's message: American society doesn't have the culture or administrative infrastructure to deal with the home-care needs of the 11.5 million Americans who will be over 85 two decades from now. Attention is needed now to prepare for preserving their independence and dignity, and tending to the welfare of typically underpaid home-care workers. This powerful audio will awaken listeners' sensibilities and shake up institutional lethargy about this looming social need. T.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2015]
