I purchased this book for use as a textbook in a 6 week class for caregivers. The focus is on the caregiver and how that person can manage stress, their feelings, keep some semblance of a meaningful life, and if you are a spouse there are tools for separating your caregiving time from marriage time. A year later I still use the tools provided and keep the "Helpbook" handy for reference. Taking care of yourself first is #1 priority. Sixty percent of caregivers die before the person being cared for. One thought I remind myself of frequently....remember the pre-flight instructions given by the flight attendant...."Put the oxygen mask on yourself first, THEN you can help the person next to you. "

I teach a caregiver class called Powerful Tools for Caregivers and this is the textbook.
It is about the importance of self-care when your life is devoted to caring for a loved one.
