Publisher's Description

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.

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.

    Lori Hogan in her new book, "Strength for the Moment" published by Image Books gives us Inspiration for Caregivers

    From the back cover: 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.

    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.

    When cancer or Alzheimer's Disease strikes our parents or spouse we are honored to take care of them but the daily care is unrelenting and sometimes can be brutal. The caregiver can get worn out and needs something to fill the empty tank. Ms. Hogan knows what the caregiver needs and she provides inspiration for the needy. In fifty-four inspirational chapters Ms. Hogan deals with the unrelenting demands and challenges caregivers face and shows God in the midst of them all. Ms. Hogan gives us true stories that she begins with an introduction where she briefly shares her own thoughts and experiences of caregiving. She then follows up with a verse of Scripture, a short narrative and a caregiver's prayer that is meant to bless_and give God's strength for_every caregiving task. If you or someone you know is a caregiver then this book is for you.

    I am in the home care business and this book is THE best book I have ever read on dealing with the stresses of being a caregiver.

    A great gift for anyone who is dealing with the ups and downs of loving and caring for a friend or family member.

    Fifty-four individuals share their experiences of caring for a loved one in need. Each anecdote begins with an introduction of the caregiver, a Bible verse, and is followed by a short caregiver's prayer. In total, each takes only five pages, allowing the reader to pick up the book, read a bit, and leave the rest for another time. Although the subject can be distressing, the book is not. Rather, it offers tips and tricks that might be just the thing to lift the outlook of the caregiver.

    Thank you to Laura Tucker at Image Books a Division of Random House for my copy.
