“The Family Caregiver’s Guide” by Harriet Hodgson
This book is a great resource for caregivers who are just beginning their journey, as well as for those who have been caring for a loved one for a long time.
It provides a structure that will help you organize your thoughts and actions. Although it is only 149 pages, it is packed with practical, applicable advise that will be helpful to you as your care receiver’s condition progresses. I especially love the Smart Steps list at the end of each chapter. I was also impressed with the Assessment Checklist, Home Safety Checklist, and Medicine Cabinet Checklist.
The combination of the author’s experience and personal stories, along with the expert medical advise provided by her husband, provides thoughtful wisdom and practical insights that only come with extensive experience.
