"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 eleven 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.

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.... continue reading
