There comes a time when a loved one needs more looking after than can be provided at home. Dorothy M. Stewart, whose husband suffers from dementia, found herself in just his situation. As a result, she has written a book to accompany carers through the emotional and spiritual wrestling many experience in considering residential care. You will find help in negotiating the practical problems that may arise as your loved one moves away from home, and sensitive reflections on the ups and downs many of us go through, including that great bugbear: guilt.
But while realistic, Still Caring, is also upbeat. Each meditation ends with a revitalizing self-care suggestion and the book as a whole aims to support, encourage, comfort and strengthen you, whatever stage of the journey you and your loved ones are at.
