A fellow collegue, Cheryl Carmichael, of Phoenix, Arizona, recently published her book, Dare To Care, after experiencing first hand caregiving for her mother, grandfather, and grandmother. The book is an excellent resource for information about caring for elders and how to keep them living in their own homes as they age for a longer period of time. It’s a basic “cookbook” for new or existing adult non professional caregivers in an easy to read fashion. The book is considered to be a readily, useful handy reference complete with information on supervisory and personal care, caring for people with memory loss, and palliative care.
I highly recommend this book for any caregivers library. It is one of the most complete and comprehensive resource manuals for caregivers that I’ve read.
