This book provides the reader with an in-depth detailed and easy to read approach to caregiving and explains what people in their care neurobiologically can do based on the Cognitive Level Scale and the latest research on brain function. It describes how informal caregivers are subjected to incredible stress causing inflammation within their own bodies resulting in a condition known as Caregiver Syndrome. Illogically, what is often not understood or discussed in this age of scientific advancement, modern medicine and improved health-care techniques is the fragility of the human brain and the deficits in functional cognition resulting from brain dysfunction. Caregivers recognize the difficulties faced by those they are assisting but have never been given a satisfactory reason why the person they are caring for cannot successfully do basic daily activities and tasks. It is extremely daunting for caregivers who need to prompt and cue knowing at any time they will be verbally abused by the person they care for, why do they continue -- because they care.
