"The Expat’s Guide to Growing Old in Japan" by Wm. (Wilhelmina) Penn
One of our long-term resident ex-pats has just released her latest book using her pen name as written above. The paperback book is also available in Kindle format and both can be purchased through Amazon. The links are provided below. This is very timely as the Hokkaido Multinational Senior Community has been presenting on many of the important issues covered in the book. The book is written in English.
Recently we received some recommended articles from Elder Action, http://elderaction.org/ a senior support group in the United States. Some of their suggestions fit in with previous topics presented in the Archives and therefore they were added to those reviews. Others are of a more general nature or pertain to a topic that we have not yet presented on, so they will be included below. Although these articles refer to seniors in the States, they are of a nature that they apply to other nations and systems, and could be of particular interest to expats living abroad with older family members back home. We are always open to hearing about links you recommend. Another group in Portland (our sister city) is Elders in Action http://eldersinaction.org/
