Aimed at transforming how people care for others and themselves, this life-changing handbook examines how caregivers and caring professionals can reconnect to an actively compassionate nature, enriching the lives of those they look after as well as their own. The guide contends that person-centered care should be at the heart of the care industry, acknowledging that too often caregivers are focused on accomplishing tasks rather than understanding how someone is feeling. Emphasizing how to sincerely value people, this sensitive consideration offers suggestions such as involving the elderly in decision-making and other methods for providing a positive social environment. Creatively applying empathy exercises, anecdotes, and poetry to uplift, motivate, and educate caregivers, this is an essential study on developing the skills and awareness needed to support an aging population.
