The Caregiver's Handbook Disclaimer


The material in the The Caregiver's Handbook: A Companion Resource to Caring for Your Parents was jointly developed and compiled as of December 2007 by the WGBH Educational Foundation and the MIT Workplace Center, a research center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a nonprofit educational institution (MIT).

The Caregiver's Handbook: A Companion Resource to Caring for Your Parents is designed as a "gateway to resources" and as such, it does not attempt to provide all the resources available, but to connect the reader with the elder care organizations in his or her community, understanding that it may become outdated after publication. Neither WGBH Educational Foundation nor MIT are rendering legal, healthcare, financial, insurance, accounting or any other professional advice. Therefore, individuals consulting The Caregiver's Handbook: A Companion Resource to Caring for Your Parents should also do their own research of available resources and consult with their own personal advisers, legal counsel, financial planners, insurance or benefits providers, accountants, healthcare providers and other specialists and professionals as appropriate to address an individual's needs and situation.

WGBH Educational Foundation, MIT and the authors are providing The Caregiver's Handbook: A Companion Resource to Caring for Your Parents "AS IS" and disclaim all warranties including without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, title, and the accuracy, relevance, timeliness or completeness of information contained in this book. Neither WGBH Educational Foundation nor MIT endorse the organizations listed in The Caregiver's Handbook: A Companion Resource to Caring for Your Parents, or the views such organizations express, or the products or services such organizations offer.

WGBH Educational Foundation, and MIT Workplace Center have provided organization listings, including their websites and/or consumer information phone numbers, solely to help readers find additional information about a topic.

Organizations were chosen during the research process primarily based on the following criteria: the consumer information offered adds value to the family caregiver, and the website or consumer information services do not exist solely to promote specific products or services.
