Overview

Are You Ready?

"The move to provide care in homes will increase indefinitely requiring both new professionals and increased education to the public so they are ready to work with health care systems to provide the care their family needs in their own homes." Joseph Flaherty, MD, Dean of the University of Illinois College of Medicine.

Who will be caring for you, your parents, your children, your extended family or your friends? How will changes in the health care system impact you?

Here you will find tools and templates to help you build relationships with primary suppliers of professional medical care and insurance and legal assistance. These provisions will help you to manage the entire health care process.

Approaches beyond traditional medical protocols are included as possible supplements to improve the health of the patient and to assist with the health of the care giver.

This book is a valuable resource for anyone who finds themselves in the role of primary caregiver of a loved one. As that caregiver, you want to know you are doing everything possible. The information presented here will assist with that endeavor in an organized and deliberate approach." Terri Fields, Lay Care Giver

"A must read for all involved in health care, including patients, home care providers and the doctors themselves. The book reinforces many of the issues involved in health care that are critical in assisting the overall wellbeing of the patient." Reed Panos, MD, Medical Director of Surgical Services at the Carle Clinic Association and Chief of the Department of Surgery, Carle Foundation Hospital

"After 30 years of providing pastoral care forindividuals in need, I have come to treasure most those family members and friends who are there when no 'professional' is in sight. You who know your patient's deepest spiritual needs, this resource comes from someone who has been there." Roger Digges, Senior Pastor
