🏆 2023 BIBA® Non-Fiction: Caregiving Winner!
Welcome to the world of caregiving. Dive in, the water is . . . well, it’s choppy and freezing and you can’t see land in any direction! While each caregiving journey is unique, there is one certainty– you will face unfamiliar tasks and situations, and no training manual comes with it. Most older adults are grossly underprepared for the challenges of aging, and that is the crux of the problem their caregivers face. They find themselves thrown into a sea of confusion– trying desperately to decipher what care options are available and how to access the resources and tools they need. Caregiving with Confidence takes the GUESSwork out of caregiving, to prepare you for a better caregiving experience. The author draws upon her extensive experience with both personal and professional caregiving to provide useful insight into navigating the complex maze of caregiving. She outlines clear, practical guidance on the most complex aspects of caregiving in five easy to understand categories: advocacy, medical, environmental, social and financial. Whether you are just embarking on your caregiving journey or have years of experience, there is something in this book for you!
