About the Author:

Maria M. Meyer has been a long-time advocate of social causes, beginning with her work as co-founder of the Society for Abused Children of the Children's Home Society of Florida and founding executive director of the Children's Foundation of Greater Miami. When her father-in-law suffered a stroke in 1993, Maria became aware of the need for better information about how to care for an aging parent, a responsibility shared by millions of Americans. That experience led Maria to found CareTrust Publications and to co-author the award winning guide, The Comfort of Home: An Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide for Caregivers, earning the Benjamin Franklin Award in the health category. She is a keynote speaker and workshop leader on caregiver topics to healthcare professionals and community groups as well as a Caregiver Community Action Network volunteer in for the National Family Caregiver Association.

Review:

Being a carer...can be mentally, physically and emotionally challenging...this practical guide...provides information to help carers through all stages of Parkinson's. -- European Parkinson's Disease Association, [This] guide for caregivers...is a real tour de force. --Parkinson's Association of Ireland, 2007

One of the many definitions of comfort is the capacity to ease well-being , which certainly applies to our homes when we are seeking well-being. The word, care, may have many meanings in different scenarios, but one I like best is to treat with dignity . The Comfort of Home is truly the best resource for caregivers I have seen. The basic descriptions, pictures, quick bullets of information and tips are just what caregivers need to learn, provided in an easy to read and see version. The myriad of helpful topics condensed here is just what caregivers I work with have requested and will benefit from. I highly recommend this resource to all caregivers of those with Parkinson s disease. --Gwyn M. Vernon, MSN, CRNP, Neurology Nurse PractitionerUniversity of Pennsylvania, Graduate School of Nursing
