The Handbook of Live-in Care

The Handbook of Live-in Care (now available on Amazon.com) is the second book in our senior wellness series and offers practical, how-to advice on caring for an aging parent or loved one.

Age may be “just a number” for many people, but it also brings very real daily challenges for a number of older adults. Retaining independence and living in their own homes is integral to the majority of older adults’ sense of well-being. However, frailty, illness and forgetfulness can make living at home difficult. The Handbook of Live-In Care gives caregivers-usually an adult son or daughter-practical, how to advice on caring for an elderly loved one. From understanding the psychology of home-bound adults to tips for assisting with everyday needs, The Handbook of Live-In Care offers the first definitive guide to maximizing the quality of life for an older adult.
