Help Wanted: Caregiver: A Guide to Helping Your Loved One Cope With Serious Illness
More than 50 million people in the United States provide care for someone—a family member, friend, or neighbor—who has become chronically ill or disabled and can no longer care for themselves. Chances are, someone reading these words is now or has been a caregiver, will become a caregiver, or will need a caregiver themselves.
Help Wanted: Caregiver is a guide to help those who have been tasked with caring for a loved one, friend, or family member. This book offers a primer on in-home care as well as options for institutional care, the next logical step as the scope of care becomes too much to handle. You will also find information on financial and legal issues as well as challenges that caregivers face in their relationship with the person under their care.
Share this book with your patients and their families, or use it as a resource in your personal life if you or someone you know is facing the challenge of caregiving or looking at that possibility down the road.
