Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982614365, Paperback)No one really thinks about the person beside the bed. The caregiver is like an empty chair--visitors focus on the person in the bed, and the caregiver becomes invisible. In "The Person Beside the Bed," author Jo Simpson speaks from extensive personal experience as a caregiver, offering practical, down-to-earth lessons and resources to bolster the physical and emotional needs of informal caregivers. Features of the book include an informative glossary of terms that caregivers encounter; a collection of selected scriptures to uplift and encourage caregivers; a researched list of online links to valuable websites and other helpful materials. The fact is, at some point you--as a daughter, son, husband, wife, grandchild, niece, nephew, or friends--are likely to become an informal caregiver for someone you love too. And this well-packed, helpful book can be your best friend on the journey. It is also the tool you need to show care for the one who is carrying this "blessed burden" of caring for your loved one. Don't let the caregivers in your life become invisible. Get it. Use. Read it and reap!
