Very Practical  Jan 9, 2008
This guide is very practical and deals with all aspects of eldercare and caring to the caregiver. I highly recommend it.
 
Excellent, affordable, comprehensive  Jun 20, 2006
This book is a must-have for anyone responsible for realistic decision making about his/her ability to provide health care at home, as well as an excellent how-to guide for those who accept the inherent responsibilities of the caregiver. I consider it the one "best" guide of those available to meet the needs of the growing number of home caregivers.
 
An Excellent Resource  Jun 1, 2006
I am an Illinois legal aid attorney and owner of Southwest Medicals, an online medical supply and equipment business. I strongly recommend this book. Very informative, full of helpful tips and resources. This book helps make a challenging situation much easier. I also recommend The Comfort of Home, An Illustrated Step by Setp Guide for Caregivers, 2nd Edition, by Maria M Meyer.
 
Developing a Care Plan  Aug 22, 2002
My brother and I take care of my eighty-year-old mother. She has
diabetic neuropathy and can't walk. But she's a good kid and
we take care of her. This book has helped. Although the object of the book at first seems to be to develop a care plan; it really is a book of primary skills that you need in caregiving.
The book is best because you are not overwhelmed with 465 ways
to help your loved one. This is a primary and basic skills book.
Buy this book if you are new at caregiving and don't know where to start. Because the American Medical Associarion wrote it, I imagine that it would be good for all caregivers to buy it. I just love this book. It's like a Boy Scout manual. It's user-friendly for your brain. And sometimes simplicity can do more good that needless complications and theories. Thank you and I wish you luck.
