The Complete Book of Home Health Care by Robert W. Buckingham (Crossroad/Continuum: $18.95, hardcover; $9.95, paperback). This comprehensive guide is for those who believe that hospitals are built for profit, not for the well-being of patients, and that at-home patients, treated as "total" persons, will heal more quickly. Recommended for those considering alternatives to hospital care, from home birth to home care of the disabled or dying.
