How to deal with single quote?

By using PreparedStatement, I have no problem with insert and update. But when I am doing select, preparedstatement doesn't take care of '\'' for me.
For example, I have a sql statement.
String sqlStatement = " select * from mytable where text = 'Elenor's home'";
I am wondering besides replacing the '\'' with "''", is there any other ways to do it? Any idea will be helpful!
Thanks in advance!

PreparedStatement only works if you use the setXXX() methods.
