Americans are getting older. By 2030, older adults are projected to outnumber children for the first time in US history, according to a 2018 US Census report. That means that more of us will find ourselves juggling work-family balance and wondering how best to make sure the people we love get the care they need — without sacrificing our own health.

Thanks to Judith Sands, a Hadassah life member, help is here in the form of a practical how-to guide to navigating the challenges of caregiving, particularly for individuals interested in learning more about the ins and outs of home hospice care.

Her book, Home Hospice Navigation: The Caregiver’s Guide, is a comprehensive, tip-filled resource, says Sands. “It takes the guesswork out of caregiving and is intended for caregivers dealing with the home hospice journey. It also benefits those whose loved one is declining with a chronic illness.”  Sands, a mother of one who grew up in Buffalo, NY, and Rehovot, Israel, lived in Coral Springs, FL, for many years, before moving to Raleigh, NC, with her husband, Lou Sands, who she describes as being “supportive” and very involved with her mother’s caregiving.
