A Writer’s Playground–a place to find wordplay, writing prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart “Blog Blitz” by Linda Martin Andersen
Over at the playground…it was a warm, breezy spring day. Kites soared above, people hurried along the walking track, and children played.
Jamison waved and ran up to his friend Bradley when he and his family entered the park…
“Come meet my grandma,” Bradley called. “She lives with us, now.”
Jamison hurried over and spoke to Bradley’s Grandma, who pushed a walker. Then he and Bradley rushed off to the swings.
“How does your mom know what to do for your Grandma?” Jamison asked.
“She’s reads lots of books. There’s one she carries with her. She says everybody should read it.”
Bradley looked back at his mom. “I think it’s her new favorite book.”
Jamison nodded. “Let’s go play some of our favorites.”
“I’ll race you,” Bradley said.
What is one of your favorite guide books? What is one of your favorite how to books?
Check your bookcase for other books. Ask your parents to name some of their favorites.

It offers ways for a caregiver to get time away from caregiving responsibilities and contains information substitute caregivers must have to keep their elders safe. Along with all this, the book explains the signs of the end of life, ways to celebrate an elder’s life, and gives duties of an executor of an estate. It also includes ten useful charts to assist in assessing and recording an elder’s needs and capabilities.
What People Are Saying:
“There are several charts in the appendix for the reader to utilize by filling in related information, making it a truly useful, everyday tool for everything from organizational tips to emergency needs that will slide right into a purse or overnight bag. Certainly not one of those books you half-read then sit on a shelf to collect dust.”
“It provides links to online applications and phone numbers, ideas and resources as a starting place to brainstorm easy, meaningful ways to assist you in maintaining your elder’s health and your own…I wish that I had known of it when I was a caregiver. I know that I would have been prepared for everything and possibly paid for it too! If you have a family member who needs your help, don’t hesitate to buy this book. It is a valuable tool for every family, organization, or caregiver.
“This book is a no-frills, very well-researched self-help guide on how to help. The language is simple, saying what Joan wants to say and no more…What is particularly impressive is the logical, step by step way Joan analyzes each problem, so that without talking down to the reader, she presents a guide even a kid could understand and follow…I have worked both as a psychotherapist and as a nurse in nursing homes. My wife cared for her mother for many years, with me on the sidelines. From this personal experience, I can recommend Joan’s Elder Care Guide as accurate, helpful and even inspiring.”
