The Comfort of Home provides tips for people caring for someone who is aging or has a chronic illness or disability.
Frequently now, the responsibility of caring for someone who is aging or has a chronic illness or disability falls on a family member. “Burnout” is the drain of physical, spiritual and emotional reserves that occurs when caregivers slip into exhaustion or depression.
The Comfort of Home: A Complete Guide for Caregivers (3rd edition) by Maria M. Meyer and Paula Derr offers information on deciding whether home care is possible, financing home care, creating a daily plan, avoiding burnout, proper body mechanics for ease of transfer and movement, and end-of-life care and the grief process. The guide also includes a chapter on self-care, a glossary, and a list of helpful resources.
It is available in hardcover, for kindle, and in a limited number of paperback books.
