The Caregiver's Survival Guide - How to Do the Right Thing for your
Child, Spouse, Partner & Parents Without Getting Depressed, Giving
Up or Going Insane! In short, this book is about taking care of the people we care about and
love, which is a daunting job that few people are prepared or equipped
for, but that millions of people are called upon to do, often while they're
in the middle of living their own busy and complicated lives...
...In addition, the books I read dealt primarily with the care of parents
and/or spouses, and that's it. My book deals with those subjects in
depth, but I also deal with the following subjects:
- The care of children who are either born needing lifelong care, or require
that care through illness or accident.
- The challenges of the LGBT community which, in spite of recent legislation
mandating that gay marriage is legal in all 50 states, continues to face
daunting legal hurdles.
- The complex and heartbreaking care of returning veterans from Iraq and
Afghanistan, which number into the millions.
- An entire chapter on the legal issues that all caregivers and the ones
they're caring for need to know about as health declines and dependency sets in.
