“Do You Have What It Takes? A Workbook in Preparation for Caregiving,” by Judith M. Ashley, Today’s Caregiver
“Twenty years ago, for the last six weeks of her mother’s life, the author was her mother’s primary caregiver. Her mother wished to die at home and, at that time, there was little in the way of resources to prepare the author for, or guide her through, such a responsible and emotionally-charged experience. In this, her second book, the author set out to create a practical, self-help workbook to support those who find themselves considering taking on a caregiving role and, at the same time, wondering whether they can do it or not.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform): If people understood what caregiving involves, they would take the risk and expense of long-term care more seriously and earlier.
