Editorial Reviews

This is an informative book using mindfulness and self awareness to ease the caregiver's journey. [The Mindful Caregiver is] presented in an easy and insightful reading style. . . .The use of case studies throughout the book present pertinent issues, ideas and strategies . . . [which] help negate the feelings of isolation and loneliness. . . .I believe a caregiver reading this would find their spirits lifted and find their personal fear and guilt subsiding, for these reasons alone the book is worth reading. . . .While the book is uplifting and positive it doesn't shirk from the realistic and in places honest picture of what it means to be a caregiver. . . .The resources, appendices and bibliography . . . are comprehensive and provide the reader with a starting point and include an excellent appendix on how to evaluate a website. . . .an excellent resource for carers. Its open writing style presents a non judgemental uplifting read with no expectations placed upon the reader. It can be read from cover to cover but provides useful chapters to dip back into at a later day or if requiring a therapeutic pick-me-up.
