In The Caregiving Wife’s Handbook, Dr. Denholm provides the tools and practical advice caregivers need to navigate these rough waters and to emerge at peace with themselves and their loved ones.”

Denholm pulls no punches about the difficulties surrounding being either a full-time or part-time caregiver. She writes from personal experience and the experience of those who have been through the fire of frustration, guilt and exhaustion that accompanies the caregiver role.
The "Boulder Activity" outlined to help eliminate anger and pent up resentment, as well as her list of 50 "Do's and Don'ts" are well worth the price of the book alone. This is a must-have manual for anyone facing the dilemna of how to care for another while still caring about their own safety and sanity.
Her personal story coupled with invaluable guidance makes this a book a healing companion for any caregiver.
I recommend highly

I asked for permission to send it, and a week later my sister-in-law called to say how much she had learned. Send this book to everyone who is at any step along the way of caring for someone else!
While the book is written for wives living with terminally ill husbands, I found the personal stories and detailed advice useful for any long-term caregiver. The information included is honest and validating. Caregiving is a stressful, relentless role, which Ms. Denholm helps to make sense of, for anyone who wishes to get the answers. This book is a quick, easy read for busy caregivers.
