Guidance for Brain Injury and Elderly Care

A guide by Grant (Washington)

Products sampled from this guide:
I have been a caregiver to my grandfather for the past 5 years and I wish I would have had all these books when I started. Since then, my wife and I have read many books on how to be caregivers for the elderly as well as books on brain injury and dementia. My grandfather has been suffering from a brain injury for the past 5 years of his life, and reading these books have helped me understand his condition to better care for him. I highly recommend this list of book for any caregiver helping those who are suffering from Alzheimer's, stroke, dementia, brain injuries, or even those who are just of old age and are having difficulty making decisions.
