Hugs for Caregivers Dec 17, 1998
I showed Hugs for Caregivers to my friend. She held the book like it was a kiss and didn't let go of it. If you could have seen her face. Without even talking about it we shared the pain. It touched a sore spot and took it all away. The book, it works.
This powerful book blesses people who care for an elderly parent, a chronically ill child, a shut-in or a retarded person. Short, honest chat room style dialog fits into the busiest person's day. The book has been used in support group role playing. Gathering experience in ordinary support group life, Hugs provides practical tools and personal insights to empower positive forces in caregivers' lives. There is a helpful resource section in the back.
Each of the 112 pages in this book offers a powerful source of strength and consolation.
You won't regret sharing this warm, fun book with friends. Oct 8, 1998
I enjoyed reading this book from beginning to end. It was surprising to find humor along with good advice, and the relaxed tone and easy-to-read format made me feel comfortably at home. The characters seemed real, as if I have known them for years by whatever names they might have, and I found myself sympathizing with them. Perhaps it was the conversational atmosphere, warm and fun, that turned a serious book into a delightful memory. Certainly, that was helped by the attractive black and white pictures, all of people laughing, sharing family times together, suggesting that even in the worst of times, you can have some good moments. This book could be a caregiver's dream, a gift of comfort for a stressed-out family member or friend in the midst of troubled days.
