Description

Most caregivers today have no training for the role into which they are thrust. Having been the primary caregiver for her mother, Lois Knutson draws on not only her years of experience, but also her professional training to offer encouragement and assistance to caregivers. Because she knows the situations that weigh down caregivers, Knutson gently builds them up as they continue to care for their elderly loved ones. In addition to practical tips, readers will find ways to care for themselves. Subjects addressed in Compassionate Caregiving include: how to balance work and caregiving; when and how to find home healthcare or care facilities; long-distance caregiving; how to provide care for the dying; and much more.
