From the Heart Through the Hands: The Power of Touch in Caregiving

$14.10 USD

This book is for people who like to touch and to be touched and for those who long to be touched more. It is for those who feel comfortable communicating through their hands and for those who wish to feel more at ease in transmitting care through touch. It is for people whose responsibility or job or gift it is to oversee or to help take care of the elderly and ill members of our society. It is for sons and daughters caring for ageing parents with physical impairments that effect a role reversal in a lifetime of relating. It is for the courageous men and women who continue caring for spouses or mothers or fathers with dementia related diseases such as Alzheimer's after such a disease has robbed that loved one of the ability to remember the relationship he or she once shared with the care giver. It is for companions and family members struggling and sometimes sacrificing to provide care for their loved ones at home. It is for the unpaid and overworked carers in skilled nursing communities whose daily duties included providing physical care for men and women experiencing a wide range of physical and mental challenges. Dawn Nelson is a nationally recognised speaker, author and lecturer and the founder of Compassionate Touch for those in Later Life Stages. Her first book, Compassionate Touch: Hands On Caring Giving For The Elderly And The Dying was recommended by one Kaiser Permanent Medical Director as essential reading for all caregivers
