Date:3/25/2008

WAYNE, N.J., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding ways to help caregivers maintain a sense of balance in their lives while allowing their loved ones to remain independent is the focus of a recently published free Caregiver's guide. Today, there are an estimated 50 million Americans who are caregivers and the free caregivers' guide will help them enhance the health, safety and wellness of their loved-ones

The Caregiver's Guide presents a practical step- by-step approach towards caregiving and includes topics like: how to know if your loved one is taking their medications; ensuring that medications are taken as prescribed; reminding your loved one of important tasks; checking on your loved one's safety and well-being; developing a plan for working caregivers; creating a home safety check list.

Given the intense and emotional nature of the caregiving relationship, these Americans are facing an enormous amount of stress. An AARP study found that the pressures of caregiving have an impact on the caregiver's health, family relationships and job performance.

The guide also introduces an inexpensive and innovative electronic caregiver's assistant that has many helpful care-management features. For example, it reminds users to take their medications and to perform important safety-related tasks and actions. If the loved-one does not acknowledge the reminder messages, the caregiver is automatically alerted by phone with an automated message to check on the user's well-being.
