Helping Yourself Help Others: A Book for Caregivers.
by Carter, Rosalynn
New York: Times Books, 1994. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Rosalynn Carter on the front free endpaper. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. In Helping Yourself Help Others, Mrs. Carter writes, "Caregivers give so much of themselves and sometimes receive very little in return. The purpose of this book is to encourage you, to empathize with you, and to advocate for your special needs. I hope it will help you have an easier and more enjoyable life." Carter addresses the issues most caregivers face. How do you avoid burnout--the sense of feeling completely overwhelmed and unrewarded? How do you balance your responsibilities as a caregiver with the rest of your life? How can you enlist the aid of other family members? How can you educate yourself about your loved one's condition and work more effectively with the health care team? When is an institution the right choice for your loved one? How can you access helpful associations, literature and government aid? (Inventory #: 44016)
