The AGS Foundation for Health in Aging -: "2nd edition of Eldercare at Home as a resource for families and friends who are caring for older people at home. Written by experienced health professionals, the book is a tool for caregivers who are working in consultation with a health care professional in providing home care for an older person. Families are increasingly involved in caring for older adults who want to remain at home. Providing that care can be one of the most rewarding experiences of one’s life. It can be one of the most challenging experiences as well. Family caregivers frequently have to deal with new, unfamiliar problems and learn new skills. They must do this in the context of strong emotional relationships. They must also involve the older person as much as possible in his or her own care. At the same time, family members need to take care of themselves so that they are able to provide the long-term care that is required and maintain their own quality of life. To meet these challenges, advice and guidance from experienced professionals can be important and helpful. The 2nd edition of Eldercare at Home gives this guidance. The book gives clear, practical instructions for dealing with common caregiving problems and supports a problem-solving approach to managing care at home and working cooperatively with health professionals.
