Overview

Caregiving is no vacation, but you can cruise more smoothly through it!
If you're facing the daunting reality that you're about to become a caregiver--whether you planned for it or not--Cruising through Caregiving is the down-to-earth and authoritative answer you need. Jennifer FitzPatrick has been through nearly every possible scenario on the caregiving spectrum, both professionally and personally, and she expertly shows you how to be a responsible, loving caregiver without being overcome by guilt, exhaustion, or worry.
It doesn't matter whether you have advantages such as money or an extended family. You don't have to passively just let things happen. No matter your particular situation, FitzPatrick has a practical and thoughtful solution to deal with it. She'll help you discover and harness powers you don't even know you have--from getting other family members to participate in caregiving to navigating a loved one's finances, living setting, or declining physical and mental health conditions.
Advice and resources from FitzPatrick and twenty-four other professionals show how to give your loved one the best quality of life possible without sacrificing your own life, health, career, relationships, or financial stability.
