Dr. Jerald Winakur

ETHICAL CAREGIVING IN AGING AMERICA

—Advance Praise

From Abraham Verghese, author of My Own Country, The Tennis Partner, Cutting For Stone:

`A beautifully written account by a physician son describing his father`s decline from Alzheimer`s, Memory Lessons is a wise and lasting treatise about sickness and health, life and death, and the redeeming power of love.`

From Publisher’s Weekly:

“Winakur recalls the long medical journey that brought him to devote himself to the aged, from medical school, where specialization was the rule, to his thriving practice as a local doctor. He touches on many pressing issues within the profession, such as the havoc wrought by managed care, the debate over “quality care” of the elderly, and whether prolonging life at any cost is wise. Probing and intelligent, Winakur’s work challenges readers to think hard and deeply about the choices they make in the care of their elders.” (Jan. 2009)
