Lymphedema Caregiver's Guide: Arranging and Providing Home Care
by Mary Kathleen Kearse, PT, CLT-LANA, Elizabeth McMahon, PhD, & Ann Ehrlich, MA
Caregiver’s Guide is the first book to provide detailed instructions for caregivers on all aspects of lymphedema 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.
