The guide is divided into the following five chapters: Respite Services; Caregiver Organizations; Helplines; Hotlines; Databases; Educational Materials; and Home Shopping. The guide includes sidebars with useful tips in each chapter; Perspective boxes with quotes from actual caregivers; icons for each reference to items listed in more than one chapter; Chapter ending boxes that outline the association's four key principles for Caregiver Self-Advocacy; and Appendices with frequently used numbers, new resources, facts and tips, and terms.
