When the Caregiving Is For a Spouse

CWH_cover_final(1)Check out the Washington Post article, Caregiving is Especially Complicated When the Patient is Your Spouse, an article originally published in the January 14, 2013 online edition.

Written for the Consumer’s Union but appearing in the Post, the piece describes a book, The Caregiving Wife’s Handbook, by Diana Denholm, a licensed professional therapist who provided extensive care to her husband. Below are the topics that appeared in the article, but the book is far more comprehensive. The reviews on the Amazon website characterize the book as useful for any person who is providing care to a family member.

Topics in the Article 

  • How does caring for a spouse differ for caring for a parent?
  • What’s the most important advice you offer to caregivers?
  • What are other pitfalls to know about?
  • When should a caregiver seek outside assistance?
