I gave a copy of this book to my in-laws (my father in law has Parkinson's). They both appreciated looking through it for ideas. Some of the information they do not need yet, but are glad to know where to look when they do (for instance: how high to install those support bars in the hallway?). Some of the tips on how to manage symptoms - for instance if you have bad balance: walk in a small half circle instead of trying to make a sharp turn. Small bits of knowledge like that have been really helpful. They like knowing they do not have to re-invent the wheel, someone has already discovered some of the things that will make a more comfortable home for both the person who has Parkinson's and the Caregiver.

The book's format is such that the reader can quickly refer to the subject area they desire. Information is given in layman's terms while still being medically up-to-date. Illustrations make it even more helpful. Recommend it to any PD caregiver.

"Comfort" is a perfect word for the title of Maria M. Meyer, Paula Derr, and Susan C. Imke's book "The Comfort of Home." The authors are accomplished registered nurses as well as caregiver educators and advocates. Ms. Imke contributes a wealth of specialized knowledge of, and experience with, Parkinson disease. "The Comfort of Home for Parkinson Disease" brings comfort and peace of mind to families of people with Parkinson disease. The authors have successfully compiled a complete collection of the latest Parkinson disease-specific information, resources, caregiving options, record-keeping templates, home safety tips and illustrations, and much more. The material is presented with clarity and compassion. Two imporant and fundamental premises permeate the book: 1) that Parkinson disease affects not only the patient, but the caregiver, and the entire family system; and 2) that PD demands a holistic, team approach to care. This book not only validates, but also elevates, the role of the family caregiver as someone who is intimately involved in, and knowledgable about, the disease, and who is an integral member of the care team. The book goes the extra mile (actually, miles) to help any family caregiver navigate the systems of health care, home care, and Parkinson disease. I heartily give this book 5 stars.

"One of the many definitions of comfort is "the capacity to ease well-being", which certainly applies to our homes when we are seeking well-being. The word, care, may have many meanings in different scenarios, but one I like best is "to treat with dignity". The Comfort of Home is truly the best resource for caregivers I have seen. The basic descriptions, pictures, quick bullets of information and tips are just what caregivers need to learn, provided in an easy to "read and see" version. The myriad of helpful topics condensed here is just what caregivers I work with have requested and will benefit from. I highly recommend this resource to all caregivers of those with Parkinson's disease."
