     ‘Caregiving 101’ is her third book, which is filled with creative caregiving ideas and solutions, amazing true stories, fascinating charts, fun cartoons, and an extensive section for keeping track of your personal and medical information.

     It’s a must-have for caregivers of elders and a valuable gift for the holder of your own Power of Attorney (POA). You can hear Donna sharing some of her vast caregiving knowledge (if you will scroll down to the archieve date of 7-30-11 and to segment 04) at wsRadio interview ."

If you are the caregiver of a senior adult ,

after you purchase this book, read at least the first 2 chapters and then complete the 40 pages of important information about your senior loved one.  Then, feel free to make copies* of chapter 14 so that you can fill out a set of vital information sheets for each of your parents and family members. After that, you will be well on your way to giving your loved one outstanding care in their golden years.


If you are the senior who wants good care in the future from your adult child, after purchasing this book, fill in the 40 pages of vital information in chapter 14.  Highlight any sections you feel are most important to you in yellow (it copies better) and give it to your caregiver. After that, you can relax knowing that you have saved your caregiver hours of research when they find themselves knee deep in your medical, financial, and housing needs and you'll know you helped them find the important information they will need more easily.
