Description:

Lymphedeam Caregiver¿s Guide is the first book to provide detailed instructions for caregivers on all aspects of lymphedema (or lymphoedema) home care including physical care (skin care, simple lymph drainage, compression, exercise, etc.), communications skills and emotional support, and activities of daily living. Caregivers will also learn ways to protect themselves from injury and burnout. Caregiver¿s Guide outlines a systematic approach to determining the patient¿s care needs, arranging care, and coordinating multiple caregivers. Trained lymphedema caregivers are in short supply now and we face a `care gap¿ in the near future as the number of people needing care increases while the pool of potential family caregivers shrinks. This book will help: * People with lymphedema and their families and friends understand what care is required, locate caregivers and other resources, and navigate the reimbursement maze. This book also covers coordinating multiple caregivers, preparing the home for care, and many other practical topics. * Caregivers understand lymphedema, their role in lymphedema care, specific skills for providing physical care and emotional support, and how to manage equipment and supplies for home care. They will also learn ways to protect themselves from physical injury and emotional burnout as caregivers. * Lymphedema therapists work more effectively with their patients and the patient¿s caregivers. * Home care planners and administrators understand lymphedema and the special requirements of lymphedema home care.
