A Caregiver’s Guide by Judy McCann-Beranger
6 x 9, 141 pages, perfect bound paperback
This practical guide is intended to promote dignity, respect and value for everyone – especially those faced with the diagnosis of a progressive illness. It is intended to provide practical information for family and paid caregivers to help them alter lifestyles and living environments, thus ensuring a better quality of life and reduced stress levels for all involved.
Whether paid or unpaid, it is important for care providers to stay informed and knowledgeable, with a commitment to honouring the routines of the person for whom they are caring, regardless of age or health issues. This will foster a greater likelihood of maintaining these familiar routines while integrating additional therapeutic activities that will further enhance quality of life.
