From Library Journal Houts, director of the Family Caregiver Education Program for Central Pennsylvania, has created a practical guide for home caregivers that addresses 22 common problems associated with HIV and AIDS, including physiological changes (e.g., opportunistic infections and fatigue) and emotional and psychological difficulties (e.g., anxiety and depression). Parallel in scope and arrangement to his Home Care Guide for Cancer (American College of Physicians, 1994), this book successfully shows how to implement home care plans for HIV and AIDS patients. The first two chapters describe the book's arrangement and introduce the concept of caregiving, respectively. Each subsequent chapter is devoted to treating a problem, beginning with a concise overview of the home care plan and concluding with a useful section on evaluating and adjusting it. Further details about symptoms and care are presented in bold-faced, bulleted type, which makes them easily accessible. The appendixes list resources of additional information in the United States and Canada and indicate medications used to treat HIV infections (including possible side effects and interactions). Although this guide is appropriate for family members and friends serving as caregivers, professionals will also appreciate its rich content and conciseness. Recommended for public libraries, nursing collections, and patient education collections.?Ximena Chrisagis, Wright State Univ., Dayton, Ohio
