    “This is terrific! Not only as a nurse, but also as a family caregiver, I can truly appreciate Tina’s insightful guidance provided in this Guide for Caregiving. This information would have been a source of much needed insights years ago when I cared for my mother-in-law whose multiple medical conditions were compounded by dementia. It would also have provided much needed direction ten years ago when caring for my mother in her home after suffering a stroke that left her paralyzed on her left side, on tube feedings, and essentially bedridden. And today, as I care for a family member with diabetes and dementia and help a dear friend who requires fourteen prescription medications and a special diet to maintain medical stability, I can rely on this Guide for answers to the many issues that I face.”

    “Tina Marrelli’s book is a “Life Saver.” Worry, doubt, confusion, depression, anger, and feelings of being overwhelmed were what I felt when I realized that I was the “Caregiver.” This book has transformed me into a confident caregiver knowing I could find the answer to most all situations I faced as a caregiver to a loved one and friend. It also made me realize the importance of taking care of myself. I would recommend this book to any professional or any person that find themselves in the caregiver position. It is a very valuable tool.”
