Joan’s Elder Care Guide Makes a Great Gift for Caregivers

“Joan’s Elder Care Guide Makes a Great Gift for Caregivers” by Joan Y. Edwards

Thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy of Joan’s Elder Care Guide for yourself or for a caregiver you know. I appreciate it very much. I really want to help caregivers. Many of them don’t know about my book. I’d appreciate it very much if you would tell the caregivers you know about it.

Joan’s Elder Care Guide provides caregivers essential information they need to meet their needs and the needs of those in their care.

Caregivers spend so much time caring for and about their elders, they forget to do things for themselves. Therefore, this book makes a nice gift to remind them to take time for themselves and to help them find the help they need.  

One friend bought the book for herself and put notes in the margins telling things she wanted her caregivers to do if she ever needs that extra boost of care.

Here are 3 excerpts from reviews:

“A compact resource that addresses the typical concerns of those who care for the elderly.”— Kirkus Reviews

All your questions that you didn’t even know you should ask are answered in this book on Elder Care-it’s great!—Barbara Lunow

There is advice for how to handle emotions that are sure to arise and for making sure to provide social outlets for your elder, and so much more. From first deciding the best location for your loved one to the end of life discussions, this book has it all. The book even provides checklists to use and a whole host of resources!—Shawn Simon

Five Stars on a scale of 1-5

Joan’s Elder Care Guide: Empowering You and Your Elder to Survive, by Joan Y Edwards, is a comprehensive handbook for those who are taking care of or may need to take care of an elderly person. So often when one becomes a caregiver to a parent or other relative, they are not at all prepared for the job at hand. Being unprepared can cause stress to the caregiver and to the person being cared for.

With Joan’s handbook, this stress, frustration, and exhaustion can be relieved. There is advice for how to handle emotions that are sure to arise and for making sure to provide social outlets for your elder, and so much more. From first deciding the best location for your loved one to the end of life discussions, this book has it all. The book even provides checklists to use and a whole host of resources!

Of essential importance, is making sure your own needs are met. We often forget to care for ourselves when we are caring for a loved one. However we are no good to them, if we are not good to ourselves. What is sometimes difficult to think about are the financial issues to consider after your loved one has passed. Joan’s book discusses how to best handle wills, trusts, estates, and more. There is even a section on grieving our loved one.

I especially love the anecdotal stories she shares about her time caring for her feisty, witty elderly mother. Her experiences are what prompted her to write this book. She realized how much she needed to consider before deciding to provide full-time care for her mother. There did not seem to be a comprehensive guide to help her, so she decided to write her own. This is a book everyone should have if they may ever need to care for an elderly person. Joan Y Edwards has thought of everything!”
