Introducing my Alzheimer's Caregivers Book . . .

If you are feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, exhausted and guilty that you are not coping, then my book 'A Healing Hug for Alzheimer's Caregivers' will bring you some relief.  It will help you to gain control over the chaos and create a more calm and contented home for you and your loved one. 

Soon you will be proud of the way you are coping and will be enjoying a better quality of life. 

Most carers don't look after themselves.  Is that you?  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 instead of just 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. 

It is also a perfect resource for Alzheimer's Caregiver's training.
