Free Caregiver's Guide Helps Caregivers & Loved-Ones
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 guide provides caregivers with an easy-to-implement and inexpensive way to maximize the well-being of their loved-ones and reduce the stress associated with caregiving. 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.

According to the National Family Caregivers Association, more than 50 million people provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend during any given year. 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.

One out of four seniors lives alone and over 50% of seniors fail to take their medications as prescribed. The failure to take medications as prescribed can have a serious effect upon health. Studies indicate that it can cost an extra $2,000 a year for each patient in extra doctor visits alone, and non-compliance is associated with as many as 40% of nursing home admissions.

The Caregiver's Guide was developed by Safety Response Systems, a recipient of Today's Caregiver Magazine's 2008 Caregiver Friendly Product Award. Today's Caregiver is the leading provider of information, support and guidance for family and professional caregivers.
