Reviews - What do customers think about Caring for Aging Loved Ones (Focus on the Family)?
Perfect reference for everything a caregiver encounters Dec 14, 2006
There are many "complete guides" to caring for loved ones; I've seen many of them, as I receive them from the publishers to review. This is one that I think really was a "complete guide" and having it from a Christian perspective (published with Focus on the Family) is a nice benefit.
The reading is not complex or dry. You will be able to quickly find information to reference. A lot of other books may help you with the nitty-gritty specifics of finding adequate care or learning how to cope with your parent's lessened independence, but this book has a wonderful overview, offering support and resources. It's a must-have for your shelf to reference back to for life-issues as they arrive.
