Book Description

Caregiving is inevitably fraught with complex issues — emotional as well as medical, financial and legal. Checklist for Family Caregivers by Sally Balch Hurmecan helps organize the responsibilities that caregivers face.

In one place, you'll be able to record and update the myriad details of which you need to keep track. And if you don't know where to start, this invaluable tool tells you, step by step, what you need and why.

You can easily personalize the to-do lists, either in the book or electronically, and have them available for quick reference for your caregiving team — family, friends, aides and medical, financial and legal professionals.

This new book — third in the Checklist series from AARP and the American Bar Association — will save you time and simplify the daunting tasks of caregiving. Hurme shows you how to become a trusted steward — without losing your sanity.

A companion to the PBS Caring for Mom and Dad documentary (May 2015) and Amy Goyer's ABA/AARP Juggling Life, Work and Caregiving (June 2015)
