Library Journal - Library JournalFollowing Kerri Smith's Caring for Your Aging Parents ( LJ 2/1/92), this second title in the publisher's ``Working Caregiver'' series is another winner. Heath, an expert on caregiving issues, provides an introductory guide for those facing the prospect of caring for loved ones from a geographical distance. To be used in tandem with a Care Log, which unfortunately must be purchased separately, this small volume broadly focuses on planning for the nitty-gritty problems of dealing with relatives, support groups, and social service agencies from a distance. Care plans, travel tips, paperwork, and legal and financial issues are covered; special mention is made of international caregiving problems. Recommended for most collections.-- Anne C. Tomlin, Auburn Memorial Hospital Lib., N.Y.
