The former pilot turned best-selling author shares his experiences and writes about the financial, physical, and emotional struggles of caregiving to help caregivers amidst a pandemic.
Port Charlotte, FL, 31st August 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, When the pandemic hit, many families found themselves worrying about the safety of their loved ones, especially the elderly. For others, caregiving at home for a loved one wasn’t a new chapter.
Patrick Palmer was not new to caregiving. He found himself with caregiving responsibilities after his wife was diagnosed with brain cancer.
In his third book titled, ‘Are You Prepared to be a Caregiver,’ he focuses on the caregivers and the challenges they face. He highlights the hidden stress of caregiving based on his own experience of caregiving for his sick wife for over six years.
He wrote his first guide book titled ‘A Husband’s Guide to Hands-On Caregiving’ to help husbands and other male caregivers overcome their challenges. His wife fought a five-year-long battle with cancer, and Patrick stood by her side every second.
He wrote the book to help caregivers like himself who had no idea where to start and what to do.
In his third book, he talks about caregiving for a loved one, be it a partner, parent, or child. These include financial planning to afford the cost of in-home private care, estate planning to ensure the heirs receive the maximum value of the estate, the benefits of long-term healthcare insurance, and even the practice of outfitting a home to minimize accidents.
He also talks about obtaining household support so the caregiver can focus their time and effort accordingly.
When talking about his book, one spokesperson said, “I love that Patrick talks in a conversational tone. The way he writes is so genuine I feel comforted by his words. It is not just advice or a checklist. It is genuine caring for another person who is in the same position as you. It is empathy.”
