COLUMBIA, S.C., Dec. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Seniors First Home Care is pleased to announce the publication of founder Melissa Sprouse Browne's newest book called, The Caregiver's Training Program: What You Need to Know to Take Care of Your Parents in Their Golden Years.
The Caregiver's Training Program gives you practical, immediately useful tactics for caring for an aging parent. This book provides the step by step instruction you need to understand what to do, who to call and how to find help when you need it.
With the staggering increase in the population of those age 65 and older, the fastest growing segment of the U.S. workforce will be retirement age by the year 2014. Millions of Americans will take on the responsibility of caring for an aging parent or relative, working as unpaid, untrained caregivers. As our nation ages, the need for senior caregivers will become as common as the need for childcare. The Caregiver's Training Program is written for the sandwich generation – those who find themselves caring for their parents, as well as for their own younger families.
Written by Melissa Sprouse Browne, owner of Seniors First Home Care, The Caregiver's Training Program addresses the common issues you'll encounter, including how to handle a parent with Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson Disease, breathing disorders, mobility issues, stroke, congestive heart failure and more. Learn what documents are required to manage your parent's affairs and understand common end of life orders such as a Health Care Power of Attorney, a DNR and what's required to engage a Hospice organization.
The book is available on www.amazon.com, as well as on a number of e-readers including Kindle, Nook, the Apple iBookstore and the Sony e-reader. Additional information can be found at www.caregiverstrainingprogram.com and www.seniorsfirsthomecare.com, or by calling 803-791-9115.
