For new AADMM members questions about how to run their business are often as urgent as those about daily money management. Even long-term DMMs need information to keep up-to-date on effectively managing the day-to-day activities of an entrepreneurial business.

Now to supplement information that can be obtained through AADMM educational programs and networking, the association has introduced an online Bookshop. Through special arrangements with publishers, the AADMM is gathering a library of resources to help DMMs in their business operations.

Facing the Finish: A Road Map for Aging Parents and Adult ChildrenFacing the Finish: A Road Map for Aging Parents and Adult Children

AADMM members: $13 each 
Non-members: $15 each

Facing the Finish, A Road Map for Aging Parents and Adult Children, is an essential guide to end-of-life planning. “One of the biggest mistakes I see is folks who wait too long,” says author Sheri Samotin. “By the time they decide what they want to do, their choices are more limited and they feel like they have lost control of the situation.” In Facing the Finish, Samotin draws on her vast experience as a life transition coach. The book provides real-life examples, knowledge and practical advice to readers as they prepare for the older adult’s final years. Samotin speaks to both generations as she discusses planning for housing, health care, personal care, finances, and death, and how to make those decisions. The book also discusses managing family dynamics and the importance of clear, honest communication.

DMM Barbara Hance wrote this book to share her feelings about the experience of owning her own business and working with the elderly and disabled, to show how it is better to laugh than to wallow in despair, and to demonstrate how humor has a way of connecting people. Through a special arrangement with her publisher we are able to offer this lovely 193 page hardback book to members at a discount.

When AADMM Board Member Fredi O’Hara reviewed this book in 2005, she called it “a poignant journey thorough all life’s unexpected . . . peppered with Barbara’s very humorous observations and frustrations as she deals with her own aging process.” Each chapter stands alone as she introduces the reader to the real characters in her story and at chapter’s end there is a lesson to be learned which she relates with humor and love. Ms. O’Hara recommends that “reading it is a present you give yourself and you may want to present it to someone as a warm act of sharing.”
