A Caregiver's Complete Guide for Safe Mobility and Independence in the Home

Ultimate Caregiver's Guide

Harbours Press.

Drawing on his more than twenty years as a practicing physical therapist, author Kevin Lockette has compiled an unparalleled resource for home caregivers: A Caregiver's Complete Guide for Safe Mobility and Independence in the Home delivers exactly what its title states. Lockette's numerous strategies and tips focus on how to offer safe caregiving, especially as it relates to the care-receiver's mobility and independence. But he also gives attention to the safety of the caregiver, because, as he wisely notes, "If a caregiver is injured, it frequently results in the care-receiver losing the ability to remain in a community setting."

This book has easily referenced chapters on such topics as body mechanics (including principles of safe lifting), guidelines for transfers (including considerations for body type and various disabilities), adaptive and assistive devices for the care-receiver, fall prevention and fall-proofing the home, and information on types of wheelchairs. He also includes detailed instructions (with illustrations) on appropriate exercises for the minimally to moderately impaired. A helpful glossary is provided, as are several appendices, which offer important information on various caregiver associations, caregiver-specific Web sites, and numerous connected resources.

"Kevin Lockette PT has written extensively on rehabilitation and exercise for those with physical impairments. In this, his latest book, he goes beyond a simple guide for caregivers; he demonstrates his passion for his field as he adroitly shares his indispensable information with his readers. As a caregiver, you wouldn't want anything less for those in your care. With A Caregiver's Complete Guide for Safe Mobility and Independence in the Home, you won't need anything more."

"Over the last 20 years, physical therapy clinician Kevin Lockette has systematically amassed a wealth of skills, practical knowledge and tips to promote independence in the home setting. Now this publication represents his scholarly contribution at a time when long-term caring is shifting rapidly from institutional to home and community-based settings. A Caregiver's Complete Guide for Safe Mobility and Independence in the Home is set to become a valuable resource for family caregivers, home care agencies and small adult care or foster homes everywhere. This is a practical guide that they have been looking for."

Book & DVD - Available September 2008

Kevin Lockette PT (Author of Move It) and Wally Amos.

We are extremely excited to publish this book which is truly the first of its kind in many ways. Much of the material in this book and DVD is not available presently to a wide audience and it is also the first book/DVD on this topic written and directed by a physical therapist.

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a movement disorder that is unique. Due to this fact, the video/DVD format is the best way to illustrate movement techniques and exercise with actual persons with PD. The book format also offers useful additional information that is best presented in written form/text.

Here is a short synopsis of each chapter:

I. Review of physical manifestations of PD so that we can better understand how to combat them.
II. Teach mobility techniques that apply both scientific approaches of physical therapy as well as pragmatic solutions.
III. Review assistive devises for safer walking.
IV. Fall prevention strategies, how to fall and what to do when you are on the floor.
V. Review many of adaptive equipment devices that will help maintain independence.
VI-VIII. Exercise programs exclusively designed for PD.
IX. Flexibility program designed to maintain independence and avoid other musculo-skeletal injuries.
