From Library Journal:

Meyer and Derr (coauthors, The Comfort of Home: An Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide for Caregivers) collaborate again for a new addition to their popular series, this time with Stroke Connection magazine editor Caswell. Comprehensive and practical, the current book is organized into three parts: the first pertains to general background information about strokes and caregiving options; the second discusses specific aspects of daily living for stroke survivors (from dressing to toileting, bathing to eating); and the third encompasses several glossaries (including one for medical abbreviations) and an index. The text's large font and bulleted-list format within each section-as well as diagrams detailing bed making, lifting procedures, eating aids, and more-make this handbook easy to read and singularly useful. Highlights include coverage of the important but often neglected topic of caregiver stress and a substantive chapter on various methods of paying for care, including the recent changes in Medicare. Relevant resources (associations, web sites, books) follow each chapter, and helpful tips are interspersed throughout. Strongly recommended for public libraries and consumer health collections.-Jennifer Johnston, formerly with San Bernardino P.L., CA (c) Copyright 2010.
