Taking Charge provides caregivers with newfound confidence in their observations and teaches them to recognize problems early -- such as potentially deadly medication errors -- so that they can help prevent or minimize serious complications by alerting doctors and nurses that diagnosis and treatment is required. Taking Charge shows readers that (1) You do not need medical training to be effective members of the caregiving team. (2) The elderly are most at risk to suffer serious and life-threatening complications of minor illnesses and routine treatments. (3) Since most doctors and nurses have little or no training in geriatrics, misdiagnosis is common. (4) Caregivers are essential members of the caregiving team because they are able to detect subtle changes in status of their loved ones that signal the beginning of a potential medical crisis and are able to advocate for accurate diagnoses and proper treatments. (5) Caregivers can help doctors and nurses develop strategies to prevent these complications, therefore helping to prolong their loved ones' lives, to promote a higher quality of life, and a dignified end-of-life experience.
