Homecare for the Critically and Terminally Ill
"Homecare for the Critically and Terminally Ill" is a program designed for ordinary people who find themselves in the role of primary caregiver without having the benefit of any professional, medical, or nursing training. It discusses practical issues and solutions to daily care responsibilities and problems that arise during home care. It is useful to the professional as a guide in developing and communicating practical training and assistance to families that may be involved in homecare settings, especially in guiding the ill person, families and caregivers through the sequence of care as the ill person becomes weaker and less responsive.
