Complete is the operative word in Joy Loverdale’s updated edition of The Complete Eldercare Planner (Three Rivers Press, 2009). Though written with the American health system in mind, the book imparts a huge amount of practical information for anyone caring for a friend or family member. Loverdale includes chapters on evaluating whether you’re the best person to take on the care giving role, communication, housing, transportation, and more. The book provides numerous worksheets that can help caregivers consider questions they may not have thought about. Loverdale’s style is warm, and makes readers feel as though she is speaking to them as a reassuring friend. Available in the NSCR library and in some North Shore Libraries.
