Riassunto: CAREGIVING Ready or Not is written to help caregivers anticipate, understand and address the many issues they are likely to face as a result of aging, illness or injury. This book cuts through the clutter and confusion and offers clear and unbiased information and insight to help caregivers and care receivers make informed decisions. Throughout the book, I provide practical knowledge, tools and tips that you and your family can immediately begin applying. I also offer thought-provoking and actionable perspectives to help you along your journey ahead Ready or Not.
CAREGIVING Ready or Not provides foundational information caregivers so desperately need. The journey I take you through in this book starts with helping you make sense of your situation, discovering your roles and responsibilities, exploring the aging process and seeing life through the lens of a care receiver. Midway through the book I delve deeper into practical and purposeful caregiving, address discussions, decisions and dynamics along with conflict communication strategies. Then I wrap things up addressing loss and grieving, sharing end-of-life considerations, and ideas to help ensure lasting memories. These are all topics caregivers need to know and understand, as doing so will help them engage in more meaningful and supportive ways.
