Senior Care Planning expert Annalee Kruger‘s recent release, The Invisible Patient The Emotional, Financial, and Physical Toll on Family Caregivers hit Amazon.com’s bestseller list on October 19. 2021, climbing all the way to Number One in the Law > Family & Health Law > Medical Law & Legislation and as the number one Hot New Release in Medical Law & Legislation, Aging Parents & Eldercare, Retirement Planning, Physician & Patient Caregiving, Social Sciences Gerontology, Nursing Gerontology, and Adulthood & Aging.
In The Invisible Patient, national speaker and podcaster, senior care advisor, and caregiver advocate Annalee Kruger teaches caretakers how to appreciate the blessings of being a caregiver while also looking after themselves. Fulfilling the role of family caregiver is hard work, even if chosen willingly as an act of love to another. The stress of being a caregiver can lead to burnout and exhaustion and, in some cases, financial peril IF an Aging Plan is not in place. All this ongoing self-sacrifice causes a phenomenon known as compassion fatigue, leading caregivers to become the “invisible patient.”
Caregiving can be a positive experience IF families better understand aging, understand the disease their loved one has, learn how to improve family communication, and have an Aging Plan. Kruger leaves no stone unturned, providing personal anecdotes and scenarios about the caregiving process, and includes numerous references and resources in this guide to caring for the caregiver.
In response to the book becoming an Amazon bestseller, Kruger stated, “I appreciate all the support for The Invisible Patient! I am passionate about helping families and professional healthcare workers across the globe understand compassion fatigue and the consequences of not having an aging plan in place.”
With the recent popularity on the topic of compassion fatigue in caregivers, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Invisible Patient’s subject matter is a hot topic and a must-read for adult children of seniors.
