Rebalancing the prescribed roles in challenging caregiving situations so all involved are supported. New in Paperback! The word caregiver typically suggests someone doing all the giving for a frail, physically or mentally challenged, or aging person who is doing all the receiving. Marty Richards proposes a rebalanced approach of ┐caresharing.┐ From this perspective, the ┐cared for┐ and the ┐carer┐ share a deep sense of connection. Each has strengths and resources. Each can teach the other. Each can share in grief, hope, love and wisdom. Richards shows you how to move from independent caregiving to interdependent caregiving by engaging the spiritual and emotional aspects of caring for a loved one. Whether you are a daughter or son, a husband or wife, a sibling, long-term partner or good friend, Caresharing offers a multilayered, reciprocal process that will help you keep your spirit┐and your loved one┐s spirit┐alive in challenging times.
