- "Elder Care: A Six Step Guide to Balancing Work and Family" by John Paul Marosy NEW
There are literally hundreds of books that have been written to guide families through the caregiving journey. Many of them are exceptional but you probably only need to buy or read four or five of them, depending on your specific needs. If you are working full-time (like most caregivers), John Paul Marosys practical book, Elder Care: A Six Step Guide to Balancing Work and Family should be on your reading list.
John Pauls hands-on book/workbook is the only resource of its kind that I am aware of. It is the only book that addresses some very difficult issues that caregivers with conflicting responsibilities at home and in the office regularly face. For example, detailed questionnaires that help to assess how your eldercare situation is impacting work. It also gives you insights on what to say and what NOT to say to your supervisor.
The book includes information, tips, worksheets, and wisdom on the following topics:
