Judith was living and working on the West Coast when her parents’ health declined, requiring her to return to Florida to be able to assist with their care. As a result of her family caregiver experience, she wrote a handbook which offers invaluable information to other family caregivers that she learned the hard way.
In her book, Judith shares invaluable information which reinforces the need to ask questions like:
- How long will my Mom/Dad be in the hospital?
- Are they admitted or under observation status?
And to consider the “real cost of caregiving”, because it very often affects YOU!! There are 65 million family caregivers and 60% of them (mostly women) are working outside the home, while providing care. It is SO important to understand the complexities of this.
