Bob’s book is entitled The Good Caregiver which is written with Jeannine Ouelette, but, if you know him, is the real Bob Kane coming out in ways that might surprise you. The book is published by Avery, a division of Penguin Books. It’s sub-title is no exaggeration of its content: “A one-of-a-Kind Compassionate Resource for Anyone Caring for an Aged Love one.” It begins where we all do, with “Becoming a Caregiver” and works with you through every conceivable event along your path. With the kinds of questions you need to ask, of whom, and when. Having been on this journey myself, I was totally amazed at the tables, the lists of problems/observations, the home safety check-list. I guarantee you’ve never had a resource you’ll use and enjoy as much as The Good Caregiver.
