THE CAREGIVER'S JOURNEY
by Todd F. Cope, RN
This reassuring book will help you cope with all of the decisions, challenges, and emotions that come with a terminal diagnosis or old age.
Learn how to bring your family together, how to minimize and alleviate pain, and how to care for yourself so you can provide better care for those you love.
Note from the AuthorWhile you may be thinking that this is not the type of book (you would normally read), I believe you will find it surprisingly enjoyable and informative.
It is estimated that 65 million Americans (mostly women) are currently caregivers for a loved one.
With the Baby Boom generation reaching retirement age, that number will only increase.
Most adults who are not caregivers either know one, or anticipate becoming one in the near future.
As a Registered Nurse, I have spent most of my 25+ year career caring for the elderly in addition to personally caring for both of my parents in their later years.
In this time, I have discovered that there is a lack of easily understood and easily accessible information for people who find themselves caring for a loved one.
I have now addressed that concern in The Caregiver's Journey, a concise, accurate and enjoyable read.
With just 128 pages, even an overburdened caregiver can find time to read it.
About the AuthorTodd F. Cope has been a registered nurse for more than twenty years, and while he has worked in a variety of settings, the majority of his career has involved caring for the elderly. He often speaks to nursing students and faculty on a variety of eldercare subjects, and his professional qualifications include four years of service as Director of Medicare Home Health, and as a supervisor of nursing at Courtyard at Jamestown, Utah’s largest assisted living facility. His experience also includes end-of-life care for both of his own parents. In his spare time, he enjoys running, gardening and spending time with his family.
Cope is the author of four published novels, including The Shift, a work that inspired the CBS television movie The Last Dance, starring Maureen O’Hara.
