Sale: Was $19.55 Now $12.55 Drawing on his more than 20 years as a practicing physical therapist, author Kevin Lockette has compiled an unparalleled resource for home caregivers: "A Caregiver's Complete Guide for Safe Mobility and Independence in the Home" delivers exactly what its title states. Lockette's numerous strategies and tips focus on how to offer safe caregiving, especially as it relates to the care-receiver's mobility and independence. But he also gives attention to the safety of the caregiver, because, as he wisely notes, 'If a caregiver is injured, it frequently results in the care-receiver losing the ability to remain in a community setting.'  This book has easily referenced chapters on such topics as body mechanics (including principles of safe lifting), guidelines for transfers (including considerations for body type and various disabilities), adaptive and assistive devices for the caregiver, fall prevention and fall-proofing the home and information on types of wheelchairs. He also includes detailed instructions (with illustrations) on appropriate exercises for the minimally to moderately impaired. A helpful glossary is provided, as are several appendices, which offer important information on various caregiver associations, caregiver-specific Web sites and numerous connected resources.
