“As we grow older, caregiving gets more complex and demanding.  Aging or illness does not have to result in giving up your home, or your lifestyle. The resources I’ve created were developed after years of experience in the Health Care Industry. It is my hope that they will give you peace of mind as you move forward on your journey of in-home patient care. The Ultimate Caregiving Expert’s Guide to Compassionate Caregiving will educate you and allow you to develop home health care skills, good judgement, and the confidence to play an active role in helping your loved ones with their health care needs.” -Tena Scallan

The Caregiving Organizational Planner

Assist your senior family member in managing their life responsibilities, while preserving the way they have organized their life.

Passing the Torch

Your senior parent or loved one has lived a long and full life of managing their own finances, home ownership, healthcare, insurance and more.  As a caregiver, you will need to become familiar with all of the information relevant to your parent or senior loved one’s life. Planning and organizing this information ahead of time allows you to quickly retrieve important information when you need it most.

Becoming an Organized Caregiver

Don’t wait until it’s too difficult or impossible for you to gain access to medical, banking, insurance and household information. Get organized with your parent or loved one, and make a plan to document these materials together so you can both have more peace of mind and confidence moving forward.

 

Gain access to years of industry experience and knowledge and become a more confident Family Caregiver.

Should be a college class

“What a book! Highly recommended for any one who is or will be in a caregiving situation. Highly informative, Detailed directions on many aspects of care. Great tips and suggestions for bathing, walking, wounds and more. It is like taking a college class called, Guide to Caring 101.”  – K. Reisler

 

Superlative Guide for Providing Health Care

“When our own patient, my wife, was paraplegic, needing the care provided by a home health aide rather than by a nursing staff, this book would have been exactly what was needed. In several cases, we employed aides who were experienced but lacked formal training, and the insurance company required that we have a nurse certify that they were able to perform the necessary care-giving activities. Having this book available for their instruction would have been a blessing. Furthermore, much of the care Scallan describes is needed by patients who are receiving skilled nursing care as well.” – Douglas W. Cooper

 

Insightful and important

“I have family members who will soon be entering this stage of life soon and this book covers it all.
Most of us don’t even think about how to handle “caregiving” situations before they occur, and that is one of the biggest mistakes we can make. With changing health care regulations and expensive choices, this author provides expert insight and advice to guide us through these murky waters.” – Jim Price

Nurse’s Stamp of Approval

“A very complete and thorough explanation of every facet of caregiving. Could be used as a textbook for a CNA certification class. As a registered professional nurse with many years of private duty care, I would recommend this book wholeheartedly!”
