Reviews - What do customers think about The Personal Care Attendant Guide: The Art of Finding, Keeping, or Being One?
It's the perfect, unique choice Feb 3, 2007
Many Americans with disabilities need a personal attendant to live independently - but very few titles address how to find a qualified attendant and how to work with one. Katie Banister is herself disabled and also a speaker and advocate: her title pairs forms and worksheets to organize an attendant search with advice on anecdotes for caregivers and disabled alike, pairing personal stories of special challenges with plenty of insights. It's the perfect, unique choice for any who would understand the special needs and challenges involved in working with a personal attendant.
