Planning for Safety, Quality, and Compassionate Care for Your Loved One and Yourself, one of the top names in home care nursing, Tina M. Marrelli, MSN, MA, RN, FAAN, offers support and information for readers faced with the challenge of becoming a caregiver, providing helpful answers to common questions and additional resources to educate and prepare readers for the realities of caregiving.
