Engage those around your patients for better outcomes.
e-Caregiving is a web-based patient & caregiver education tool that healthcare providers offer those spouses, family, significant others who care for patients at home and away from the healthcare institution. e-Caregiving assists new or experienced caregivers to understand their role, and provides essential support for this difficult challenge. e-Caregiving educates patients and caregivers about the condition and what might happen as the condition declines or improves. e-Caregiving describes the kinds of professional care the patient may receive, and what will happen as that care is delivered. e-Caregiving instructs in how to carry it out tasks that the caregiver may do. A better informed caregiver enhances quality of life for the patient and the caregiver.
As a provider, you can help your patients' caregivers to join the care team. Patients have better outcomes, sooner. Your quality scores improve, visibly, in your star ratings and public quality indicators. Your costs decline, and your reimbursement goes up. You're better equipped to thrive under value-based purchasing regulations.

This is terrific! Not only as a nurse, but also as a family caregiver, I can truly appreciate Tina’s insightful guidance provided in this Guide to Caregiving. This information would have been a source of much needed insights 15 years ago when I cared for my mother-in-law whose multiple medical conditions were compounded by dementia. It would also have provided much needed direction ten years ago when caring for my mother in her home after suffering a stroke that left her paralyzed on her left side, on tube feedings, and essentially bedridden. And today, as I care for a family member with diabetes and dementia and help a dear friend who requires fourteen prescription medications and a special diet to maintain medical stability. I can rely on this Guide for answers to the many issues that I face.

This guide contains very valuable information particularly for new caregivers. I particularly liked the Self-Care of Caregiver (Taking care of Yourself!) chapter.
I believe that two main audiences would use this guide. First and foremost will be the family members coping with the caregiver-caregivee relationship. Additionally, the book would be a good read for healthcare providers, including nurses, physicians, social workers and therapists to understand the scope of the caregiver’s work and responsibility.
This Guide is a very important source of information for a person becoming a caregiver or those who have been caregivers in the past. There is so much to know! I am a caregiver, and I learned so much. I also think every Doctor’s office should have this guide book available to their patients and while waiting in the waiting room.
e-Caregiving grew out of Tina's family experience caring for her father-in-law, Otto. A WWII veteran, Otto lived with Tina and her husband during the final years of his life. Tina encountered challenges that every caregiver discovers. Through her professional preparation, Tina was far better equipped than most, and recognized the help, education, guidance and support that so many millions of caregivers need today.
