Description

"Professional carer" - it's almost a contradiction in terms.
Let down by the 'system' Ann Benton, aided by a team of helpers, charts the journey of her father-in-law from unsatisfactory hospital care, through spectacularly absent 'care in the community', to being looked after at home. In eight easy-to-digest chapters she gives a Christian perspective on caring for your aged parent as well as giving practical tools to help those who find themselves in the same situation. Ann brings out the positive benefits of caring for those unable to look after themselves in her light-hearted, poignant and straightforward manner.

Endorsements

Ann Benton writes from the experience of having cared for her father-in-law. The book covers many practical issues that will be faced as good ideas for helping at whatever level of commitment to this task we can give.

New Life, Australia's Christian Newspaper

This is the updated and expanded edition of the book that first came out in 2007. I had read the original but was very glad of the excuse to re-read it, The last three chapters seem new and are really worth having. I think any Christian who has elderly par­ents that they are involved in caring for will find this a very valuable book. It's encourag­ing, practical, Christ centred and an easy read! You could even lend it to a non-believ­er struggling with the issues to help give a new perspective and to share your faith.
