Diabetes--How to Help
Your Complete Guide to Caring for a Loved One with Diabetes
Gary Scheiner, Diane Herbert
Living with diabetes is complicated and challenging. In addition to a multitude of daily tasks and decisions, managing diabetes requires appropriate support from those surrounding the person with diabetes: partners, family members, friends, co-workers, and caregivers. Most aspects of diabetes care/treatment focus on the patient. There are dozens of books and online resources designed specifically for the person with diabetes, but very few that address the needs and interests of their support network. This leaves the vast majority of caregivers in a quandary regarding their role. Many are under-educated on diabetes and its management, and most are unsure of where their involvement begins and ends.
Diabetes: How to Help is intended to fill the void that currently exists in the publishing marketplace. It will address both knowledge deficits and emotional needs of the caregiver community.
