Nursing & Educational Aid
Those in the nursing field understand that with the coming tsunami of 73 million baby-boomers over the age of 65 by 2030 the need for nurses who specialize in eldercare, especially in-home care situations, is going to increase exponentially in the coming years. Most current curriculums cover all the procedural, medical and pharmacology needs of your students’ chosen profession. I present to you something unique to add to your program. “The Caregivers: An Extraordinary Journey of Love” chronicles the eight year journey my wife and I took while caring for three parents each with unique and demanding needs.
It provides students and professors with a family’s perspective offering numerous points for discussion. Understanding the demands and social aspects of caring for a loved one are much different than what is offered in the average nursing curriculum. This book emphasizes the human emotional side, which is paramount to understand before starting into a career in elder care.
Whether your students work at a nosocomial, community or in-home setting this book will be extremely helpful in understanding the emotional roller coaster of a family caregiver.
I am also available for speaking to your classes and engaging in discussions on the subject.
