From the moment you discover that someone you love needs your care, through the legal and financial quagmires, to dealing with doctors, health professionals and managed care organizations, to insurance and then invaluable down-to-earth practical caregiving tips and advice for all sorts of health challenges-these experts tell you how to give and get the best care for your loved one..

The Fearless Caregiver arms you with all the knowledge and skills you need for deciding if your loved one's care is appropriate or if something more is needed, and, more importantly, the ability to do something about it.

But what about you? Who cares about the caregiver? These experts do. They show you how to overcome the depression, guilt and fear often associated with people who spend their time caring for others, and not themselves. They give you advice for finding help when you need a vacation, or just a break. They even help you make holidays joyous again.

In the pages of The Fearless Caregiver the experts speak directly to you with professional guidance to help you through the America's healthcare system as many of the vital decisions, costs and burdens are put back on the family.
