Intouch : In Touch Spring 2014
20 IN TOUCH SPRING 2014 THE AUSTRALIAN AGEING GENERATION HANDBOOK Josie Gagliano is the main carer for her mother, who has had dementia for several years. Collaborating with aged care services and communities around Australia, the handbook is a comprehensive guide of services and support groups for those embarking on the care journey. Josie conducted interviews with carers and health professionals, revealing the confronting reality of being a carer. Ita Buttrose comments in her foreword: "This book contains useful insights not only on how to provide care and support, but also the importance of the carer looking after their own health."
