9780399529986: The Caregiver's Survival Handbook: How to Care for Your Aging Parent Without Losing Yourself

One in four families in the U.S. is caring for parents or other senior relatives-and 72% of the primary caregivers in these families are women. This book is written for those 16 million women who are part of the "sandwich generation"-caught between the needs of their elderly relatives and their young families. These women often feel invisible, their own needs unobserved and unappreciated by those around them.

The Caregiver's Survival Handbook not only offers practical caregiving advice for these women, but also helps them deal with the emotional concerns they face:

€ Dealing with changing parent/child roles
€ Fostering aging parents' independence
€ Asking for, and getting, help from siblings and other family members
€ Balancing work, family, and caregiving duties
€ Finding time for themselves in the middle of it all

About the Author:

Alexis Abramson is a frequent guest expert for NBC's Today Show and Weekend Today, a frequent lecturer on issues faced by the elderly and their caregivers, and a consultant for AARP and other Fortune 500 corporations. She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, People, Forbes, Time, and BusinessWeek magazines, among others.

From Publishers Weekly:

Abramson directs this sourcebook at "caregivers at both ends of the spectrum," so whether readers are occasionally helping their parents balance their checkbook or are regularly bathing, feeding and dressing elderly family members, they’ll find valuable advice in this volume. The author, an aging expert who frequently appears on the Today Show, covers a lot of ground, and does a better job with certain subjects than others. Her advice on healthcare issues—from making sure those over 65 get enough calcium to paying for prescription drugs—is sound, if sometimes basic. And for particular afflictions (e.g., Alzheimer’s, dexterity problems), readers may want something more specific. But Abramson excels when she addresses the guilt, frustration, anger, fatigue and burnout that befall many women (this book’s primary intended audience) when they’re caught between caring for parents, children, maintaining a home and pursuing a career. She includes advice and anecdotes from women going through such travails, and their stories, coupled with Abramson’s soothing, compassionate advice, are sure to bolster the sense of self of many adults who are dealing with caring for their aging parents.
