Item description for American Medical Association Guide to Home Caregiving by American Medical Association...

A definitive guide to taking care of loved ones at home, this sensitive, reliable resource provides step-by-step instructions and much-needed guidance and encouragement to anyone who is caring for a loved one at home.

Publishers Description
At some time, most families will need to provide home care for an aging family member who is ill or disabled. While home caregiving provides many benefits, it takes careful planning, support, and patience.
The American Medical Association Guide to Home Caregiving provides the information you need to take the best possible care of an elderly, ill, or disabled person in a home setting. Written by experts from the American Medical Association, the book explains such essentials as how to:
* Plan and arrange a room to adapt to a loved one's needs
* Give medications, maintain hygiene, monitor symptoms, deal with incontinence, provide emotional support, and relieve boredom
* Choose a home healthcare provider
* Pay for home healthcare, including Medicare and Medicaid, and long-term care insurance
* Care for a person with Alzheimer's disease or a terminal illness
* Choose between alternative living arrangements such as assisted living facilities or nursing homes
* Take care of yourself, the caregiver

With advice that touches both the physical and the emotional aspects of caregiving, this supportive, practical handbook will help make the experience as successful and rewarding as possible for you and your loved one.

Reviews - What do customers think about American Medical Association Guide to Home Caregiving?

Very Practical  Jan 9, 2008
This guide is very practical and deals with all aspects of eldercare and caring to the caregiver. I highly recommend it.
Excellent, affordable, comprehensive  Jun 20, 2006
This book is a must-have for anyone responsible for realistic decision making about his/her ability to provide health care at home, as well as an excellent how-to guide for those who accept the inherent responsibilities of the caregiver. I consider it the one "best" guide of those available to meet the needs of the growing number of home caregivers.
An Excellent Resource  Jun 1, 2006
I am an Illinois legal aid attorney and owner of Southwest Medicals, an online medical supply and equipment business. I strongly recommend this book. Very informative, full of helpful tips and resources. This book helps make a challenging situation much easier. I also recommend The Comfort of Home, An Illustrated Step by Setp Guide for Caregivers, 2nd Edition, by Maria M Meyer.
Developing a Care Plan  Aug 22, 2002
My brother and I take care of my eighty-year-old mother. She has
diabetic neuropathy and can't walk. But she's a good kid and
we take care of her. This book has helped. Although the object of the book at first seems to be to develop a care plan; it really is a book of primary skills that you need in caregiving.
The book is best because you are not overwhelmed with 465 ways
to help your loved one. This is a primary and basic skills book.
Buy this book if you are new at caregiving and don't know where to start. Because the American Medical Associarion wrote it, I imagine that it would be good for all caregivers to buy it. I just love this book. It's like a Boy Scout manual. It's user-friendly for your brain. And sometimes simplicity can do more good that needless complications and theories. Thank you and I wish you luck.
