About the Book

When an elderly or dependent loved one requires special care within a home, their caregiver often faces one overwhelming challenge after another without any idea of who to turn to for answers. In No Place like Home, Joyce Greene shares concise, step-by-step guidance that leads beginner caregivers through the process of implementing a plan of care in the home that tends to both physical and emotional needs of your loved ones.

Joyce, who has cared for her own mother in her home, relies on vast personal experience to provide caregivers with practical advice on how to choose an advocate, ensure the patient’s safety, organize the home, properly administer medication, fulfill dietary needs, plan health care appointments and activities, and incorporate a plan for wellness. Included are handy checklists for family members and caregivers that ensure financial and insurance information is up-to-date and that all the patient’s needs are addressed. No Place like Home offers advice, tools, and tips that will help any family or caregiver ensure that an aging or ill loved one can enjoy quality of life and care within a comforting and safe home environment.
