Overview

Are you a caregiver that feels discouraged and out of touch with your old life? There are many reasons why caregivers, as the direct result of their constant and time consuming, caregiving responsibilities, get frustrated and depressed. There are many serious issues. Loneliness, fatigue, anger, entrapment, frustration, lost love, resentment, defensiveness, to name just a few, and the list goes on. Nearly 20 of those emotional and physical issues are dealt with in this Short-Book. 100 answers and solutions are provided. The book makes a strong case for caregivers restoring their confidence, hope and happiness and succeeding in an environment they didn't fully expect.

The numbers of dedicated and well-intended individuals who have volunteered to provide care for a spouse, family member, friend or companion are staggering. Over 44 million caregivers are providing loving service to over 60 million loved patients with far too little information and assistance. Soon 10 million Millennials will join their ranks, extending an exponential rise in the number of those engaged in this remarkable work. And still the numbers keep growing while the frustrations of the caregivers continue to increase.

Advances in medical research technology, the shrinking number of hospital Geriatric departments, time pressures on physicians, and increasing expectations further compound this caregiving scenario. In what should be an environment of love and understanding, many startled caregiver feel trapped in a deplorable, even unforgivable dilemma. The bottom line is they are worn out and many want out. This book is intended to restore their hope and confidence that all can be well.
