How an elderly loved one is treated and cared for is a main concern of relatives and health care professionals around the globe. In Lessons from a Caregiver, Laurel Wicks shows how focusing on the older person’s comfort, happiness, and serenity is not only good for the elder but also a less stressful way for the caregiver to manage the elder’s care.

From the Back Cover:

About one in five households in North America is caring for an elderly parent. You’re not alone.

Laurel Wicks’ personal experiences―a blend of keen observations, perceptive thoughts, and deep caring―show how focusing on the older person’s comfort, happiness, and sense of security is not only good for the elder but also reduces the stress of the caregiver. Compassion, patience, empathy, kindness, consideration, and tenderness are the bywords for what Lessons from a Caregiver is all about. The book demystifies the process and offers suggestions on how to

· Put the feelings of the elder ahead of routine and schedules
· Take precautions for the elder’s safety
· Navigate doctors, insurance, and finances
· Understand the mind-set of elders
· Handle personal care and hygiene to enable dignity
· Nourish elders with food they enjoy and recipes they’ll love
· Preserve your own health and well-being
· Manage the final days
