Caring for an elderly relative is a problem many of us will have to grapple with and here's a Christian perspective on the subject. In this easy-to-read book, Anne follows her father-in-law's journey from unsatisfactory hospital care through absent care in the community to being looked after at home. Written in a light-hearted style, here's heartfelt experience and wise advice for those facing similar challenges.
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.
Here is an excellent primer for those who may have to care for an elderly parent. From her own experience of providing a secure and loving environment for her father-in-law in the last 18 months before he died, Ann Benton provides us with down-to-earth, biblically rooted, practical advice.
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.
