"...I've been using The Educated Caregiver at our caregiver support meetings to answer the many questions they have.  It helps with so many aspects, not only the physical needs, but the emotional as well..."

"...The tapes were exactly what I wanted and exactly what I needed. I felt so close to all the caregivers interviewed. I felt like I was in the room with the people and they were talking to me one on one.  The information is honest, down-to-earth and truthful.  I am looking for a support group.  If I can't find one, I will start one of my own with this series.  I will wear out these tapes!..."

"...These videos cover all aspects of caregiving: practical, physical, emotional.  And the newer series titled The Family Guide to Long-term Care works through every phase of decision-making as loved ones become less independent.  All these tapes are sensitively and beautifully produced and brimming with essential information from a variety of informed professionals..."

"...When an adult child, with children of her own still at home, faces subtle and then dramatic changes physically and mentally in their parent, one can't help but ask: 'What do I do now? Who do I turn to? What questions do I ask? What do I look for?'  It's overwhelming."
"Your company has done an excellent job of putting these tapes together.   They are tastefully done; the information is clear and precise and doesn't overtax the viewer with a plethora of details; and the information is presented in such a way that it is not given condescendingly to the viewer/caretaker.  They are a great 'jumping-off' point of information for those becoming caretakers, or for those who want to be aware of what to expect and how to handle the responsibilities should an adult child become a caretaker of their parent/in-law..."
