Here is a guidebook...a journal...a diary...that could save your life and provide vital life-enhancing information about you for your future caregivers. Here is your means to influence what your future caregivers will know about you and how they can interact with you.
One day most of us will find ourselves in need of some form of caregiving. Here is a unique book that provides you (the reader) with an opportunity to lay out all of the critical information you feel a future caregiver might find useful in providing for your care. From your favorite brand of toothpaste to your feelings on use of life support, this "journal" can be your way of enabling future caregivers to know you in ways they never could.
We may remain in our own homes or find ourselves in a nursing home, an assisted living center, a retirement community, a hospice, a hospital, one of our children's homes, or some other living arrangement. Whether your future caregivers are adult children, siblings, close relatives or friends, or complete strangers, there is a tremendous amount of information about you that most people don't know. Within the pages of this book are hundreds upon hundreds of topics that you can write responses to and increase the potential for better care from those that will serve you and your needs. What ever the situation, the time will most likely come when we will be looked after -- cared for -- by others.
In one compact guidebook you can share your thoughts on:
* favorite foods
* music you enjoy (and don't)
* medications that need to be taken daily
* medical conditions that could prove life-threatening
* your educational background
* your family tree
* clothes that you like to wear -- and when
* your feelings about death and your funeral
* and hundreds of other important things that could make your life more enjoyable -- and that could even save your life!
Give your future caregivers the gift of "knowledge" -- knowledge about you! This is perfect for everyone who can appreciate the importance of "information" and how critical information can be in providing the best form of caregiving in your own future.
