Publisher's Description

"Professional carer" - it's almost a contradiction in terms.

Let down by the ‘system' Ann Benton, aided by a team of helpers, charts the journey of her father-in-law from unsatisfactory hospital care, through spectacularly absent ‘care in the community', to being looked after at home.

In eight easy-to-digest chapters she gives a Christian perspective on caring for your aged parent as well as giving practical tools to help those, who find themselves in the same situation, negotiate the difficulties more easily.

Ann brings out the positive benefits of caring for those unable to look after themselves in her light-hearted, poignant and straightforward manner.

In an aging population virtually all of us will have to face the issues that are presented in this book. We should be thankful that we will have such wise and clear advice when we get to that moment.

Author Bio

Ann Benton is the wife of John Benton, a church minister, author and magazine editor. John and Ann Benton have developed and run practical Marriage orienting and enrichment seminars to the benefit of numerous couples (and couples to be).

Editorial Reviews

"Ann Benton writes from the experience of having cared for her father-in-law. The book covers many practical issues that will be faced as good ideas for helping at whatever level of commitment to this task we can give."
"Caring for an elderly elative is a problem many of us will have to grapple with and here's a Christian perspective on the subject. In this easy-to-readbook, Anne follows her father-in-law's journey from unsatisfactory hospital care through absent care in the community to being looked after at home. Written in a light-hearted style, here's heartfelt experience and wise advice for those facing similar challenges."
"Here is an excellent primer for those who may have to care for an elderly parent. From her own experience of providing a secure and loving environment for her father-in-law in the last 18 months before he died, Ann Benton provides us with down-to-earth, biblically rooted, practical advice."
"This book is written especially for those people who would find themselves caring on a daily basis for elderly relatives. Having been the primary carer for her father-in-law, Ann writes from first hand experience. She is honest about the cost, but she also describes the rewards. Above all this is a godly perspective on the subject."
