9780976480679: Lymphedema Caregiver's Guide: arranging and providing home care

Caregiver's Guide is the first book to provide detailed instructions for caregivers on all aspects of lymphedema (or lymphoedema) home care including physical care (skin care, simple lymph drainage, compression, exercise, etc.), communications skills and emotional support, and activities of daily living. Caregivers will also learn ways to protect themselves from injury and burnout. Caregiver's Guide outlines a systematic approach to determining the patient's care needs, arranging care, and coordinating multiple caregivers. Trained lymphedema caregivers are in short supply now and we face a 'care gap' in the near future as the number of people needing care increases while the pool of potential family caregivers shrinks. This book is an important first step in the process of providing trained caregivers. This book will help: * People with lymphedema and their families and friends understand what care is required, locate caregivers and other resources, and navigate the reimbursement maze. This book also covers coordinating multiple caregivers, preparing the home for care, and many other practical topics. * Caregivers understand lymphedema, their role in lymphedema care, specific skills for providing physical care and emotional support, and how to manage equipment and supplies for home care. They will also learn ways to protect themselves from physical injury and emotional burnout as caregivers. * Lymphedema therapists work more effectively with their patients and the patient's caregivers. * Home care planners and administrators understand lymphedema and the special requirements of lymphedema home care. About the authors: * Mary Kathleen Kearse, PT, CLT-LANA, has worked full time with lymphedema patients for nine years and practiced physical therapy for 24 years. * Elizabeth McMahon, PhD is a clinical psychologist and co-author of Living Well with Lymphedema, author of Overcoming the Emotional Challenges of Lymphedema, and co-editor of Voices of Lymphedema. * Ann Ehrlich, MA is a professional medical writer, co-author of Living Well with Lymphedema, and co-editor of Voices of Lymphedema.

Reviewer Feedback

A comprehensive guide for lymphedema caregivers that is well thought out and provides lots of good advice.
--Wade Farrow, MD, CWS

Please congratulate the authors for me - it is a wonderful resource that I will be recommending to my patients and their caregivers.
--Bonnie Lasinski, MA, PT, CI, CLT-LANA

This book fills a longstanding gap in lymphedema management. It is a must read for professional and family caregivers alike.
--Sheila Ridner, PhD, RN

This publication instructs and addresses the emotional, physical, financial, and cognitive needs of all involved in caring for persons with lymphedema. It is well organized and provides concrete practical solutions with written lists and pictures that will organize and instruct persons with lymphedema, their significant others and their caregivers. This book also provides wonderful information and up to date resources for practicing lymphedema therapists.
--Linda Boyle, PT CLT-LANA

The most comprehensive guide available for caregivers of patients with lymphedema, it can be recommended to professional caregivers and other interested readers as a very useful source of knowledge in this area.
-- Liliya V. Jones, MD, PT, CLT

'Bout time! Lymphedema caregiving is really an unsung and labor-intensive task, and for most caregivers it's also fraught with the emotional weight of the suffering of a family member or friend. This book to support the process and the skills of the caregiver will certainly find a ready audience.
--Bonnie Pike, lymphedema patient

As a caregiver, I believe this book will provide a source of information and guidance for both caregivers and patients alike.
--Nate Rinehart, lymphedema caregiver
