Overview

More than 50 million people in the United States provide care for someone, whether it be a family member, friend, or neighbor, who has become chronically ill or disabled and can no longer care for themselves. That means, chances are, someone reading these words is now or has been a caregiver, will become a caregiver, or will need a caregiver themselves. Help Wanted: Caregiver, a new book from Hygeia Media written by Laura J. Pinchot, provides a guide to help those who have been tasked with caring for a loved one, friend, or family member. This book offers a primer on in-home care as well as options for institutional care, the next logical step as the scope of care becomes too much to handle. You will also find infromation on financial and legal issues as well as the challenges caregivers face in their relationship for the person in their care. Help Wanted: Caregiver is a book you can share with your patients and their families as well as a resource you might find helpful in your personal life if you or someone you know is facing the challenge of caregiving or looking at that possibility in the future.
