The Caregiver's Companion (Paperback)
The Caregiver's Companion is a book for people who care for others. It is intended to be a companion, in the sense of a compassionate ally, for those who find themselves, perhaps abruptly, needing to care for others. In November 2012 Patricia Jean Smith's husband Ron suffered a massive attack on his brain. In these pages she describes how her husband's stroke affected her and talks about the critical demands and the marvellous rewards of caring---of exercising and extending care. She also writes about the adventures that otherwise would not have chanced the couple's way had it not been for Ron's stroke. Ultimately she demonstrates that caring for each other, our communities, and the Earth we inhabit, is the most vital work we can do.
