by Doug Manning

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Taking care of a loved one who is aging or has a terminal illness is a long and difficult journey. Doug Manning provides insight, wisdom and thoughts for consideration to help the caregiver in this overwhelming task.
Description
Whether a patient has cancer, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease ALS, AIDS. . .there is one thing all of these diseases have in common: someone is caring for the one who is ill. Long-term care means the caregiver is busy, overwhelmed, tired and has little opportunity to realize, or reconcile, the gradual losses that take place. This takes a toll on the caregiver, the family and the patient. Doug outlines the caregiving journey and gently provides opportunities for the caregiver to deal with the quiet sorrows.
About the author
Doug's career has included minister, counselor, business executive, author and publisher. He and his wife, Barbara, were parents to four daughters and long-term caregivers to three parents. After thirty years in the ministry, Doug began a new career in 1982 and has devoted his time to writing, counseling and leading seminars in the areas of grief and elder care. His publishing company, InSight Books, specializes in books, video and audio productions specifically designed to help people face some of the toughest challenges in life. Doug has a warm, conversational style in which he shares insights and stories from his vast experience. Sitting down to read a book from Doug is like having a conversation with a good friend.
