The Family Caregiver's Guide by Harriet Hodgson is an easy read, yet packed with lots of fabulous information of how to Care for a Loved One at Home. In this book you will find mountains of ideas and down to earth answers about how to deal with aging, mentally ill family members. As a caregiver for my mother-in-law for some years, I found myself in a situation I had no idea how to manage. In this book I found everything I needed to know. Things like what to expect, how to handle it, how and when to get help. It is truly easy to follow and has a great index in the front of the book. I would have loved to have read this book when I started as a caregiver. The book will give you insights into early and more advanced situations in the everyday life of an aged person who is depressed and/or has dementia based on the author's own experiences. It guides you on how to act and what to say. At the beginning you will find Facing and Accepting Illness, how to assess your loved one's Abilities, Getting Ready for Home Care, Caregiving Nuts and Bolts and so forth. The Family Caregiver's Guide by Harriet Hodgson is truly a God sent book to help you help your loved one at home. I really love the good feeling and the sense of "I know what I am doing now after reading this book." This book is not a substitute for medical care, but if you choose to take care of an aged, emotionally ill individual, this book will become your best friend. It is highly recommended to all people whether caregivers or not for ill love ones.
