In case you didn’t hear the big YAHOO at our house, The Caregiver’s Notebook: An Organizational Tool and Support to Help You Care for Others was officially on November 1 by Discovery House Publishers. With the cat book officially out of the bag and caregivers can actually purchase the book online and at bookstores, I’m launching a new vlog series to offer caregivers even more support.

What Kind of Caregivers?

I created The Caregiver’s Notebook to meet the needs of those dealing with a wide variety of caregiving situations. Here are some of the families I envisioned during the writing process:

  • Adult children caring for aging parents.
  • Spouses caring for husbands or wives.
  • Parents caring for babies, toddlers, young children, and teens with special needs.
  • Parents caring for adult children with special needs.
  • Parents caring for typical babies from birth through age 3.
  • Senior citizens in good health who want to have their affairs in order for whoever will care for them in case of sudden illness or accident.

So if you or someone you know is in any of those situations, the video below is for you!

What Kind of Support?

How about a vlog series that walks caregivers through each section of the notebook? Think of it as week-by-week virtual hand holding sessions that allow you to complete the notebook at your own pace and according to your own schedule. Today’s vlog introduces the series. It offers information about what’s in the notebook, who it’s for, and when to begin using it. That gives those who don’t yet have the notebook time to purchase it before the next vlog post goes live next Friday. Sound good? Then let’s get started.
