Description
Full of advice for family caregivers, this one of a kind book written by a family caregiver provides lessons from family caregivers across the country, tips for interacting with the healthcare system to better meet the needs of families dealing with chronic illness, and a cogent presentation of how public policy has a profound effect oneven the most intimate details of life in caregiving families."Suzanne Mintz has deftly woven together self-help ideas and emotional guidance for individual family caregivers with an inspirational call to arms for health policy change. Through her own powerful personal story, she tackles the range of emotions and the challenges facing every caregiver. And most important, she offers advice on how to ask for help. In addition she has taken the discussion of family caregiving issues to the next level and clearly explains why they demand the attention of our elected officials. Whether you are a current or future family caregiver, or a health policy advocate, you'll want to read, and re-read, this book. As the mother of a son with a disability, I only wish I'd read Suzanne's book before I brought him home from the hospital."--Judy Woodruff, senior correspondent, "The News Hour with Jim Lehrer"This is a revised and updated edition of "Love, Honor & Value"
