Grace and Grit

Insights to Real-Life Challenges of Aging for Adult Children and their Partents

The challenges of moving the elderly from one home to the next are frequently faced by both generations: seniors and their adult children. This book of compelling stories about this later-in-life event, often unexpected in its timing and scope, delivers points of view from the parents, adult children, and professional move managers. These real-life issues of communication, downsizing decisions pertaining to personal possessions, and sharing and sustaining memories convey the love, compassion, disappointment, and perseverance experienced by those coping through this difficult transitional time, reminding readers that they are not alone. The grace and grit exhibited in these true stories—from loved ones, friends, and other regular people—will bring solace through inspiration.

This is a must read for every adult child who wants what’s best for his/her aging parents. And it’s a wonderful gift for any senior who is facing the prospect of moving. Each story is told with such joy and gently teaches lessons that will help all of us be better people. Thank you Fritzi. [/su_quote]

[su_quote cite="P. Paulson" url=""]After reading Grace and Grit, I felt like Ms. Gros-Daillon was a trusted friend, someone that is looking out for families at many stages of life. This book and Ms. Gros-Daillon herself is a great resource for families working out the best way to support aging parents/relatives and the adult children that are supporting them. Really good!![/su_quote]

[su_quote cite="T. Bedford" url=""]Great book. The stories really hit home. You will find there are others out there going through the same things you are going through.[/su_quote]

[su_quote cite="A. Donnelly" url=""]Excellent book. I, too, have helped to move several families as they aged. I also owned a residential cleaning service for 30 years, and encountered many of the issues addressed in this book. I believe these delicate subjects were handled with knowledge, compassion, and timely suggestions for making the hard decisions. Also, the collection of subjects covers just about all situations, and the loved ones and their interacting roles. Personally, I sent a copy to each of my children, for me one day, and for their in-laws.[/su_quote]

[su_quote cite="Cat" url=""]I love the book. I was a caregiver and reading her book touch on so many points. Fritzi really knows what she's talking about. And her stories are on point. If you are thinking about your parents or yourself and a life change like in this book. Get it. It will be life changing. It will help you to understand and empathize with real life stories. Thanks for writing this book Fritzi!![/su_quote]
