                     , in the person of Fiona King, asked me to share this recent addition to their nursing library:

Whether you're a professional nurse or taking care of a loved one, you're bound to run into communication challenges as a caregiver. Some of the issues caregivers deal with include talking to care providers, managing memory loss, and avoiding power struggles. ..."


Click on either the RNCentral logo or the blue headline to read the article from their website.


Whether just beginning or a veteran caregiver, this is an excellent collection of tips and techniques.

  1. Patrick,
    I just got home yesterrday from a week-long Autism training workshop. Alot of the suggestions on the RN Central site were discussed at the workshop.  These are great ideas across the board! I think they are great even for some of our elderly people.

    Thanks for sharing!!

  2. those were excellent Patrick!! I saved them in my favorites to send to my husband for him to send to his brother-in-law; my husband's mom has Parkinson's and has memory difficulties; although actively no one is care giving to the extent you are care giving, that time could be coming soon, plus the things they mentioned about memory would be very helpful at this point in time. Thanks for posting this site!!

    hope you enjoy the day and if you spend some of it with Patti, I hope it is a great one!!

    hope your daughter is doing well too! I would imagine she's wrapped up 2 years of college; good for her!


  3. Those were helpful tips, Patrick... will help me be a better caregiver, even if I'm only visiting someone once a week. I can help the main caregiver, if nothing else. bea
