Description: Written especially for family members, friends, and spouses of dependent older adults, this vital guidebook addresses both the practical and personal issues confronted by those who are trying to balance their caregiving roles and their personal lives.

Two experts in gerontology and eldercare cover all the critical processes involved in providing safe, effective physical care for frail older people in areas ranging from medications and feeding to bed transfers and toileting. Helpful tips, guidelines, and step-by-step care instructions are presented throughout to promote health maintenance and to maximize functioning in caregivers and care receivers alike.

Unique to this book is the assistance it offers for coping with personal issues faced by caregivers, including how to:
-- navigate family relationships
-- modify communication patterns to suit physical and psychological changes
-- ensure personal health and well-being
-- find needed services

Numerous real-life caregiver stories help readers identify with common problems and learn effective problem-solving approaches that are appropriate to their circumstances.
