Accessed 21 July 2021:The Caregiver Booklet is designed to help patients,family members, and community caregivers in the home-based care of serious long term illness. Home care is best for many people with long term illnesses,including those who are close to the end of life. All patients being cared for at home should be first assessed and treated by a health worker, who will help caregivers provide high quality home care and ensure that medicines are taken correctly. This booklet explains how to: 1. Deal with specific symptoms. 2. Provide care for terminal and bedridden patients at home. 3. Decide when to seek help from a health facility.
