A Guide For CaregiversSKU:151
The author draws upon firsthand experience as a hospice volunteer and caregiver to both his son, who died of AIDS, and his elderly mother in her final years. This booklet offers practical suggestions which assist primary caregivers to function more effectively while maintaining their own health and well being. The role of primary caregiver requires a major commitment of time, energy and emotional resources. Failure to acknowledge the increased demands and make necessary adjustment can result in “burn out” due to fatigue, frustration or deteriorating health.
