Caring for the Caregiver. A Guide to Living with Alzheimer's Disease.
Warner-Lambert Co., Morris Plains, NJ.
This book is designed to take caregivers through the basics of patient care and to give them the information needed to guide them through the medical, legal, and financial issues that accompany Alzheimer's disease. The seven chapters of the book cover the following topics: understanding Alzheimer's; caring for a caregiver; medical update; finances and the law; home safety; day-to-day living; support to ease the burden; and the patient profile (pages for the caregiver to write in pertinent facts about the patient's care so that relief caregivers can take over). A glossary defines 58 terms, and a bibliography lists 19 references. (KC)
