Millions of Americans are or will be amateur caregivers for ill spouses or parents. Caregivers today, more than ever, use technology to help manage schedules, medication routines and pharmacy reminders, legal and financial affairs, as well as travel and expenses. Yet recent insurance options and health care's emerging digital world make for an overwhelming, complex process. lf you are one of the 64 million current caregivers, can you access your parents' critical documents using their user lDs and passwords? Do you know how often your parents or parent-in-laws are taking medications, how often your loved one goes to the doctor and how to be involved in medical and life decisions? Statistics show 85% of you are untrained to be a caregiver, so you are probably winging it, picking up pieces of information here and advice there.
The Caregiver's Toolbox is your guide to cool apps and online tools, insider tips on how to reduce your medical bills, your privacy rights as a caregiver, where to go for free and low cost help, and much more. lt clearly shows which tools will relieve your stress, and those that may add stress. The authors dedicate much of their professional lives to helping people navigate the long-term care matrix. They recently purchased www.caregivers-toolbox.com, which will further assist people and give them a digital community (under development), and be the source for book updates to tools, applications, and emerging technology. Ms. Hartley owns a large physician and hospital consulting group, www.physiciansehr.org and has authored many professional books published by the American Medical Association.

Both authors are closely networked with tens-of-thousands of relevant persons and organizations and are frequent seminar leaders.
