Description: Demographers are noting another unfolding facet of the vast baby boomer mosaic: millions of us are now looking after aging parents and elderly people -- and millions more will be facing the same situation in the immediate future. And despite the love and concern that most caregivers feel for their elderly relatives, the challenges or looking, after anyone for an indefinite amount of time can be daunting -- on an emotional, physical, social or financial basis.

Ann Rhodes recognizes and understands these challenges and has written a warm and friendly hands-on guide that addresses a comprehensive range of topics on caring for an elder:

Are you the right person to care for the elder person? -- self-tests for both caregiver and receiver

Deciding on the level of care needed -- and measuring your ability to provide it

Other family members -- their roles and relationships with the elder

Healthcheck and healthcare -- tips and advice on maintaining good elder health, including alternative therapies such as keeping a pet and reminiscence therapy

Coping with common physical and psychiatric conditions

Keeping your cool -- how to recognize the signs of potential elder abuse

Caring for confined elders -- practical tips on health, happiness and cleanliness

Getting help and acquiring skills -- where to find respite care and training courses

Take Care features worksheets to help readers in various assessments, plus useful directories of where to find more help on specific topics. Full of anecdotes, tips and real-life examples, and written in a clear and easy-to-understand style, Take Care is both a fund of vital information and a supportive, caring guide to caring for our elders.
