Critical guide for San Diego caregivers being updated

San Diego's Caregiver Handbook is being expanded to include additional information on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

The free booklet is a critical tool for both new and experienced caregivers in need of support. It is provided by the nonprofit Caregiver Coalition of San Diego, in partnership with Aging & Independence Services.

Included in the resource are chapters on transportation, medical equipment, in-home care options, medication management, and other frequent challenges.

It also has advice on dealing with dementia and mental health issues, along with palliative and hospice care.
