Sobre o livro
Caregiving could kill you, or it could be the best thing you have ever done. Either way, it is dangerous work, and itchanges you. As a hospice chaplain and my mother’s primary caregiver in her final eleven years, I understand the sleepless, life and death stress of constant vigilance, interspersed with long periods of daily tedium. How do we survive this? It’s a lot to be able to keep your balance.
Hospice Chaplain’s Field Guide to Caregiving are my rules and your gifts—built from experience in my trenches of love. These are not tactical How To’s but rather practical principles to support, renew, and strengthen you from the inside out on the front lines of illness and health. y will help you make better decisions that fit your family and situation. They are friendly, concise and even a bit humorous, (because you haveenough serious in your life…). It is a compendium on the cyclical nature of life and the bridge to your next right thing. Joywill come around again; it’s possible to shift to healthy survival in these caregiver trenches with a few gentle gifts. It is even possible, here, to have vitality and renewal. It is my hope that these thirty-one gifts will support you and renew you in this best and hardest journey anyone may walk with another.
