The Resourceful Caregiver: Helping Family Caregivers Help Themselves
Mosby Lifeline, 1996 - Caregivers - 144 pages
The Resourceful Caregiver is the first in a series of topic-specific "yellow pages for caregivers". The guide points caregivers to national and regional resources for many of their needs. In addition, it introduces resources to save time, ease their workload and assist in other ways as well. The guide is divided into the following five chapters: Respite Services; Caregiver Organizations; Helplines; Hotlines; Databases; Educational Materials; and Home Shopping. The guide includes sidebars with useful tips in each chapter; Perspective boxes with quotes from actual caregivers; icons for each reference to items listed in more than one chapter; Chapter ending boxes that outline the association's four key principles for Caregiver Self-Advocacy; and Appendices with frequently used numbers, new resources, facts and tips, and terms.
