One in five Canadians are now providing eldercare
to a parent in need, and as baby-boomers age, this
number is likely to grow.
What do you do when your mother or father
grows old? It’s the natural course of life, but so many
children of aging parents are unprepared. When a parent’s health begins to fail, an adult child is left
scrambling to find help, to balance their time, and to cope.
The Caregiver’s Guide will provide readers with
valuable tips and advice to help them to provide the best eldercare possible while balancing the demands
on their time.
This is not a mental “self-help” book. While it does provide encouragement and support for caregivers, it also provides practical advice on how
to care for elders in need. This comprehensive guide
answers all a caregiver’s common questions, such as:
• Should my parent stay at home or move to assisted living?
• How do I balance caregiving responsibilities
with my personal life?
• When to apply for guardianship and/or
• How to hire a professional caregiver should
the need arise
