As baby boomers care for their aging parents and set their own long-term goals, many are faced with caregiving for the first time. In A Guide For Caregiving: What’s Next? 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. Topics include creating and maintaining a care notebook, home care safety, infection control and prevention, advocacy and a glossary of health care terms. Marrelli has also included more specific sections for care related to Alzheimer’s, amputation, bedbound patients, cardiac issues, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, stroke care, end of life and hospice care.
In addition to family and friend caregivers, A Guide For Caregiving: What’s Next? may be helpful for clinicians to help their patients and their families better understand the complexity of the health care system.
The book is intentionally formatted to be able to be carried by readers who are on the go: a practical guidebook for facing caregiving challenges with a compassionate expert by the reader’s side. The book is available at www.marrelli.com
Marrelli is the author of numerous books, including the Handbook of Home Health Standards: Quality, Documentation and Reimbursement, the Nurse Manager’s Survival Guide and Hospice and Palliative Care Handbook: Quality, Compliance and Reimbursement.
