The Caregiver’s Handbook
This book is directed primarily at the caregiver.  This is not a how to book focused on problems of the ill patient.  Rather, it offers practical approaches to common caregiver problems.  Staying healthy, avoiding depression, remaining active, making friends, enjoying pleasurable activities are an essential part of any human life, including those of caregivers.  Serving as the primary caregiver for an ill loved one should not make life meaningless.
