P.S. The book signing went really well. It was a lot of fun…a big party with family, friends, and other guests. I sold 6 copies of Joan’s Elder Care Guide – 4 to friends and 2 to other shopping guests. Thank you to Megan at Park Road Books for letting me have the book signing. Thank you to all who came. Thank you to all who were there in spirit. Thank you to all who have bought my book online, in the Park Road Books, or from me. Thank you to all who signed the cards for the residents of Elmcroft Alzheimer/Dementia Unit. May God bless you.

About the Book

Joan’s Elder Care Guide: Empowering You and Your Elder to Survive published by 4RV Publishing gives you, the caregiver, ways to meet your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social needs and those of your elder to promote healing, well-being, and survival.

Based on the author’s research and fourteen years of experience caring for her mother, this book provides many resources to find the right place for your elder to live, explains ways to improve communication to help find solutions to problems, and gives organization ideas for medical, financial, insurance, and legal documents.

It offers ways for a caregiver to get time away from caregiving responsibilities and contains information substitute caregivers must have to keep their elders safe. Along with all this, the book explains the signs of the end of life, ways to celebrate an elder’s life, and gives duties of an executor of an estate. It also includes ten useful charts to assist in assessing and recording an elder’s needs and capabilities.

I hope you’ll be able to make it. Please share with your family and friends. To leave a me a note, click on comment and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

  2. Happy for you. Congratulations on your upcoming book signing! I wish I could be there, but it’s too far away. Thinking of you cards are a nice touch for those who need to be remembered! Smart thinking, Joan. A kind act too!

    • Dear Linda,
      Thanks for writing. I appreciate your being happy for me and that you’d come if it wasn’t so far away! Knowing you’ll be there in spirit makes me smile. Any day is a great day to remember our loved elders who are in assisted living or alzheimer/dementia care, or skilled nursing care.

  5. I’m so sorry to miss it, Joan. We will be out of the country then but I wish you well. I am sharing my copy with our Stephen Ministers at PUMC!

    • Dear Linda Phillips,
      Thank you for writing. I’m sorry you’re going to miss it but I’m excited you’re getting a chance to visit out of our country. I pray for you to have safe travels. Thanks for sharing your copy with your Stephen Ministers at PUMC. Corporate Stephen Ministries Programming is looking at it to see if there is a way to include it as a resource for Stephen Ministers. Isn’t that awesome? I wrote and sent them a copy. Isaac Akers sent me a sweet letter telling me that and thanking me for sharing it with them!

      Celebrate you
      Never Give Up
      Joan
