Who cares for the carers 18 August 2019 Format: Kindle Edition Verified PurchaseGlenn Lapoint beautifully and simply describes all the needs a vulnerable person may have when a decision is made to manage their physical care in the home to maintain peoples dignity, respect and, admittedly, to minimize the workload and stress on an otherwise overloaded health care system.
It covers all areas of concern from assessing a person's needs and wants, not excluding their personal contribution to their own help and demands, as well as the health and well-being of a carer.
The issues surrounding those we care for and carer-givers are wholly Universal. I've worked in this industry for many many years in an emergency response capacity and every page contains something useful and enlightening as well as heartwarming. Glenn's understanding is obvious, his compassion to be applauded, and his solutions easy to fulfill and to be admired.
This manual is a must for people who may be thinking they're on a precipice of worry for their loved ones and the choices they need to make about their home-care. It's reassuring and demystifies.
A great manual that helps to prepare us for what's to come and how we can manage and solve very difficult and life-changing problems. Apart from that it's a cracking good read.

Again, I sincerely wish you a cordial Welcome.
Out of all the various career paths I have set upon, caregiving has the highest rewards. It also has very difficult moments.
My vision is that this "website" will help All Caregivers come together and help each other. Its definitely a work in progress or "WIP" and everyone is welcome to toss in their 2 cents worth.
How to contribute? Well, there is a blog that needs posts and soon a Facebook group that needs support and would like to share valuable contributions.
My only rule is to keep everything safe and respectable for the family's reading, so pretend you're talking to your mom while writing. No offensive remarks in other words.
Next - most things here are "FREE", by design.
So go ahead and take full advantage of everything here you can, - its created for and by Caregivers, just like yourself.
