• The Family Caregiver's Manual: A Comprehensive Guide to Managing the Care of Your Loved One

In this practical manual, family caregiving expert David Levy sets forth how to evaluate priorities, understand options, and face bedrock issues (legal, financial, emotional, social), so caregivers can make wise and informed decisions for their loved ones, while gaining peace of mind from knowing they did the best they could under the circumstances.

 

Drawing from over twenty-five years of experience, Levy provides caregivers with a model for effective planning and problem-solving, focusing on the nonclinical aspects of caregiving, which are often neglected by medical professionals:

  • Caring for young and old victims of disability, illness, and chronic disorders
  • Finding ways to make our healthcare system work
  • Assembling core information about a loved one’s life
  • Developing a realistic view of how much care a loved one needs today and may need tomorrow, and understanding that continuum of care
  • Locating resources that can make a difference in making sure a loved one’s care-needs are met
  • Finding a good family caregiver support group
  • Overcoming the roadblocks the caregiver’s feelings of distress and failure can create
  • Taking a practical approach to that overused phrase “Take care of yourself”
  • And much more . . .
