New Caregiving Book

Caregivers will benefit from reading Ann Cason's new book, Circles of Care. The book focuses on ways to keep ailing and disabled seniors at home -- the place most elderly people would prefer to remain rather than enter a nursing home. Cason provides a wealth of practical tips for caregivers, from how to properly bathe an older person, to creating daily schedules, to assembling menus, to dealing with mood swings, combattiveness and other depression in the older person. Recognizing that sometimes a nursing home is the best choice for both the patient and the caregiver, there is also a section providing advice on finding a quality facility.
