Edmonton Caregivers Urge Government to Consider People Behind Alberta’s Ailing Population – Metro Edmonton Article

I was pleased to be interviewed for this Metro Edmonton article … the frail and elderly seniors frequently get much of the attention while family caregivers are often ignored and/or completely forgotten. While this news story focuses on Alberta’s caregivers, the issues remain very similar for caregivers living elsewhere as well.

Caregiver's Guide for Canadians

I don't know why this essential book is not more widely publicized. It's a lifesaver for anyone who is caring for elderly parents or relatives. Utilizing his own personal experience, the author adeptly addresses every and any issue caregivers are faced with.

I'm amazed at all the details covered in this helpful guide. Some examples of the important information addressed include sharing caregiving duties & defining roles; caregiving from away; all manner of emotional aspects; living arrangements & other responsibilities; paperwork; things to do together or when visiting; managing the medical aspects; keeping balance in your own life; and so much more. A quick flip through the Table of Contents demonstrates just how much help resides within this book. A review never quite touches all the multiple benefits that rest between the pages of such a helpful book.
