Book Description:
Drawing on his more than twenty years as a practicing physical therapist, author Kevin Lockette has compiled an unparalleled resource for home caregivers: A Caregiver's Complete Guide for Safe Mobility and Independence in the Home delivers exactly what its title states. Lockette's numerous strategies and tips focus on how to offer safe caregiving, especially as it relates to the care-receiver's mobility and independence. But he also gives attention to the safety of the caregiver, because, as he wisely notes, "If a caregiver is injured, it frequently results in the care-receiver losing the ability to remain in a community setting." This book has easily referenced chapters on such topics as body mechanics (including principles of safe lifting), guidelines for transfers (including considerations for body type and various disabilities), adaptive and assistive devices for the care-receiver, fall prevention and fall-proofing the home, and information on types of wheelchairs. He also includes detailed instructions (with illustrations) on appropriate exercises for the minimally to moderately impaired. A helpful glossary is provided, as are several appendices, which offer important information on various caregiver associations, caregiver-specific Web sites, and numerous connected resources. "Caregivers the world over have need of this book. Kevin has put together a clear guide to maintaining your ability to be a Caregiver. Whether you are caring for a loved one at home or are a professional tending to the needs of patients in a care facility, this work can provide you with the skills you need to do the job of caregiving without damaging yourself or your patient. Richly illustrated with delightful drawings and accurate photography - this book will become well worn by the wise Caregiver." Gary Powell, Executive Director The Caregiver Foundation of America
