Oviedo, FL (PRWEB) October 1, 2010
Our average life expectancy has increased from 69 to 78 over the past four decades. Advances in medicine are allowing us to live longer, but have brought with them an additional burden on society as more and more Americans are faced with increasing challenges in caring for their aging parents and loved ones.
Author and “aging specialist” Rick Caracciolo (pronounced “car- sello”) has assembled a simple, strategic literary work to assist readers, particularly Baby Boomers and their loved ones, with planning for the beauty and burden of the “Golden Ages”.
While preparing families for the physical, financial and emotional challenges that health and age-related issues often bring, Dr. Caracciolo, a Certified Occupational Therapist with a Doctorate in Christian Counseling Psychology, takes a unique approach. Aging Grace, his new book, equips care-givers as well as pastors and counselors with competent advice that completely addresses the three fundamental dimensions affected by the aging process: mental, spiritual, and the physical dimensions.
“This book outlines and details the resources, options, and information available for the Christian counselor to present to family members or a responsible party committed to helping a person face the realities of decreased independence due to aging—especially when an older person has become unable to live safely at home alone.” Dr. Rick
Aging Grace concludes with a plethora of resources, including legal document resources, a glossary of Health Care terms and concepts, and related abbreviations and acronyms vital to understanding the health care process as it pertains to aging, the elderly, and assisted living and care. Dr Caracciolo offers proven practices that can turn what could be a devastating family situation into a season of great blessing and love.
Rick Caracciolo is a successful business owner specializing in nursing care facilities with extensive experience in rehabilitative therapy, sub acute/long term care, counseling and wellness programs. Earning a Masters degree in Health Services Management, a Certified Occupational Therapist and Doctorate in Christian Counseling Psychology, he has a passion to educate counselors, patients and families on healthcare and the aging process. He currently resides in Douglasville, Georgia.
