Then let me encourage you and guide you with emotional and practical support. You are doing a wonderful job and you deserve a medal!
My book aims to nurture you and help you by demonstrating the best practical coping techniques so that you can have quality time with your loved one as well as the inevitable stress. I have covered all the essential day to day problems, as well as tackling the topics of grief and how to look after yourself too.
