‘Let us recognise that those who are ending their lives in the frailty of old age deserve the same care and attention as those who are beginning their lives in the vulnerability of infancy.’
This accessible and detailed guide includes practical tips, checklists for best practice, descriptions of their experience from a wide range of carers that addresses solutions to common problems and expert advice on how to deliver compassionate and dignified care to older people. It is easy to read and provides anecdotal experience from carers and tips from the experts.
The Carer’s Bible covers topics such as: How to ensure dignified care How to support personal care and daily living How to care for someone with dementia How to care for yourself and prevent burnout How to support emotional and spiritual needs How to support creativity and activity How to care as relatives for loved ones How to give compassionate end of life care
Uniquely, Amanda Waring also provides support and guidance for the carer, how to maintain energy and commitment, how to recognise the signs of compassion fatigue and where carers can get help if they need it.
The Carer’s Bible is essential reading for anyone who cares for an elderly person, whether as a professional or as a loved one, in its promotion of the role dignity and respect should play.
