Rick Lauber

Author of ‘Caregiver’s Guide for Canadians’, and ‘The Successful Caregiver’s Guide’. Rick Lauber is a former co-caregiver for both of his aging parents (his mother had Parkinson’s Disease and Leukemia and his father had Alzheimer’s disease). With help from his two sisters, Lauber assumed many new-found caregiving responsibilities including driving his parents to and from medical appointments, handling their day-to-day banking and investments, moving them (repeatedly), and serving as his father’s Joint Guardian and Alternate Trustee. Lauber learned that caregiving can impact a person physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially and managed by sharing the workload, delegating caregiving tasks to others, accepting help when offered, balancing his own life and career, and finding coping mechanisms.
