About this title

Synopsis:

CONSUMER BENEFITS * Practical, down-to-earth lessons for information caregivers * Glossary of terms that caregivers encounter * Selected scriptures to uplift caregivers * List of valuable websites and resources for caregivers No one really thinks about the person beside the bed. The caregiver is like an empty chair visitors focus on the person in the bed, and the caregiver becomes invisible. In the United States today more than fifty million family caregivers provide an average of thirty-seven billion hours of unpaid, informal care per year for adult family members, children, and friends with chronic illnesses or conditions. Family caregivers log in from twenty-one to eighty or more hours a week, and many do not get consistent help from other family members. Informal caregiving on an extended basis can become extremely stressful and tiring. So here s the question: who is caring for the caregiver in your life? Caregivers desperately need to be care receivers too. But what can you do to support, relieve, and assist the person in your life the one who is giving so much? The Person Beside the Bed is the tool you need to show your care for the one who is carrying this blessed burden of caring for your loved one. Don t let the caregivers in your life become invisible.
