The Complete Bedside Companion

A No-Nonsense Guide to Caring for the Seriously Ill

Nursing a parent, spouse, other relative, or friend through the painful progress of a terminal disease is not a road best traveled alone. The Complete Bedside Companion offers warmth, encouragement, and the medical, legal, financial, and emotional advice you need when caring for an ailing loved one.
Drawing on the experiences of dozens of ordinary people who have cared for relatives and friends ill or dying from cancer, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, stroke, emphysema, diabetes, AIDS, and other serious conditions -- along with the practical wisdom of distinguished medical, legal, financial, and psychological experts -- this sound, compassionate guide provides field-tested advice on every aspect of caring for the sick including:
  • Doing battle with insurance companies
  • Managing symptoms such as nausea or pain
  • Exploring experimental and alternative therapies
  • Maintaining cash flow and coping with bills
