Winner of the 2011 Caregiver Friendly Award
You know how difficult—even heartbreaking—it can be to make decisions for someone with Alzheimer’s, dementia, stroke, developmental disability, mental illness, or other brain injury. Feeling confident that you’ve made the right decision would be a welcome relief from the worry and guilt you may be feeling.

The Caregiver’s Path is an invaluable resource for caregivers struggling to make the right decisions, whether it’s taking away the car keys, moving to a long-term care facility or making the difficult medical and end-of-life choices.
A simple, step-by-step process which adjusts as your loved one’s mental capacity changes:
• Guidelines to help you determine if your loved one or patient can make decisions, who should make the decisions, and how to make better decisions
• Questions to use in almost any medical or quality-of-life situation that will help you gather all of the information you need
• Techniques for improving communication between patients, families and caregivers
The Caregiver’s Path provides tools and strategies to help answer the question, “Am I doing the right thing?”

“An excellent guide for families left struggling and feeling overwhelmed when making decisions for those who are incapacitated. The tone is conversational, examples familiar and explanations simple and clear. With comfort and assurance, decisions are made systematically, while respecting the wishes of the individual. Every caregiver should read this guide before there is a crisis.” Edna Ballard, MSW, ACSW, Duke Family Support Program; senior fellow, Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development; Bryan Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center

“It is a valuable resource that covers information needed to make all levels of decisions. I have never found this information discussed in such a clear, compassionate manner. GET THE BOOK.” Carol E. Pollard, RN, LMT
