A Husband’s Guide to Hands-On Caregiving
Hard-Earned Lessons for Men—and Women—Caring for a Loved One at Home
In 2011, Angela and Patrick Palmer got devastating news: Angela, a 10-year breast cancer survivor, had been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor. Patrick wanted information about caring for his wife at home, but he was never able to find a book written specifically for male caregivers. "A Husband’s Guide to Hands-On Caregiving" fills that gap. This book gives caregivers the guidance Patrick Palmer was looking for—useful advice not just for husbands, but also for wives, parents, children, and anyone else caring for a loved one at home. It includes practical discussions of the emotional, financial, and physical aspects of caretaking, including difficult issues such as preparing for the end of your loved one’s life. "A Husband’s Guide to Hands-On Caregiving" is an indispensable companion for anyone placed in this difficult situation … and a loving tribute to Angela.
