About the Book
Rebalancing the Roles in Caregiving So All Involved Are Supported''''When you care for someone who is dealing with the complexities of aging, illness, or disability, you share intense emotions and form deep bonds. You each have the opportunity to recognize what is most deeply human - and most deeply Divine - in the other. This sense of reciprocal sharing - between the caregiver, care receiver, and with others around you - is the essence of the dance in caresharing.''''
- from the PreludeThe word caregiver typically suggests someone doing all the giving for a frail, physically or mentally challenged, or aging person who is doing all the receiving. Marty Richards proposes a rebalanced approach of ''caresharing.'' From this perspective, the ''cared for'' and the ''carer'' share a deep sense of connection. Each has strengths and resources. Each can teach the other. Each can share in grief, hope, love and wisdom.Richards shows you how to move from independent caregiving to interdependent caregiving by engaging the spiritual and emotional aspects of caring for a loved one. Whether you are a daughter or son, a husband or wife, a sibling, long - term partner or good friend, Caresharing offers a multilayered, reciprocal process that will help you keep your spirit - and your loved one's spirit - alive in challenging times.Sharing Wisdom: What the Frail Teach the WellSharing Roles: Reinventing Family Roles in Sharing CareSharing ''Soul to Soul'': A Special Relationship with People with DementiaSharing Grief: Dealing with the Little Losses and the Big OnesSharing Forgiveness: A Key Spiritual JourneySharing Hope and Heart: An Active Process One Step at a Time
