Caregivers: Strength for the MomentDeidre and Susan are the winners of this giveaway. Thanks so much to Image Publishers for sponsoring it! You can buy Strength for the Moment at Amazon
The role of the family caregiver is very rewarding, but being a caregiver can also be physically and emotionally exhausting. Caregivers often feel overwhelmed by their work and the demands of those receiving their care, and these demands touch every aspect of their lives. Still, despite the challenges, millions of family caregivers provide care to many of the 36 million seniors living in the United States. AARP counts 65.7 million caregivers in America today--almost one-third of the adult U.S. population.Filled with Lori's experiences and those others, the lessons learned, Scripture and prayer.
Strength for the Moment responds to the needs of these special people who give of themselves to help their loved ones maintain quality of life in the home. Combining inspiring stories, prayer and scripture, and practical advice, this book provides much needed encouragement, emotional nourishment, and affirmation.
Home care is a challenge, but it can ultimately be a deeply rewarding experience. Strength for the Moment promises to inspire caregivers and helps them face each day refreshed in their thinking and prepared to provide the best care for those they love the most.
In addition to the copy sent to me for review, Image Books is offering two copies for giveaway here. Leave a comment for a drawing 5/9.

This would be a great help as our family is aging (several older parents/aunts whose care is our responsibility & priviledge - now aged in their 80's to 100's).

There have been days that I could have used a book like this! My mom moved in with us a year ago and while most days are fine, some days are very challenging.
