Review:

Practical, proven caregiver advice you won't find anywhere else

Not so long ago it was your mother and father leading you down the road to self-sufficiency; now it's you they depend on as they come to grips with growing older and losing their independence. You're not alone. Fifty-four million adults find themselves falling into the role of full- or part-time caregiver for an aging or disabled family member. In The Caregiver's Essential Handbook, you'll find useful tips for meeting the changing needs of your loved one, such as:

  • Getting organized: from locating important documents to simplifying financial issues
  • Staying safe: from installing easy-access guard rails to protecting against fraud
  • Dealing with health issues: from physical health to emotional well-being
  • Navigating medical care: from a simple checkup to an extended hospital stay
  • Searching for help: from home health care to assisted living

The tasks of caregiving can seem insurmountable. With the financial headaches, physical challenges, and time commitments it's easy to feel overwhelmed. The Caregiver's Essential Handbook can help you manage the issues one solution at a time.
