Every year in this country millions of individuals with neurological disorders require long term care. Many are cared for by loved ones. However, providing this care can cause emotional, physical, and financial stains on the caregivers. This book will provide many tools and resources to help the caregiver not only take better care of themselves, but also take better care of those who rely on them. There will be information about various types of neurological disorders (i.e., Alzheimer’s, other types of dementias, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s) and tips for reducing stress of caregivers among other tools.
