Chicken Soup for the Soul

In addition to authoring his own books, Rick Lauber is also a proud member of the Chicken Soup for The Soul family – twice! Lauber has seen two of his contributed stories to Chicken Soup for the Soul accepted for publication … you can find his stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul: It’s Christmas! and Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat. With over 250 titles, Chicken Soup for the Soul has become a highly-trusted and very familiar name in the book publishing business. With each new book they compile, Chicken Soup for the Soul receives thousands of story submissions, so being selected as a contributor is certainly an accomplishment and an honour!

Caregiver's Guide for Canadians

A superbly written and well documented book that guides the reader through typical eldercare issues provided by professional and private caregivers. Rick Lauber is a Canadian author who offers a comprehensive guide to care of our loved ones in their "greying" years, including resources, checklists, and worksheets. The author packs this little gem with practical advice such as wills, trusteeships, guardianships, driving and home safety, mobility aids, hospital visits, accommodation, travel, demographic charts, ideas for gifts, special occasions, the best times to visit one's loved one, activities and support groups, finances, and much more. There is also a section on avoiding burnout. This invaluable book is a must for the one in five Canadians who are providing or will provide care to an elderly parent.
