Being a Good Carer
is essential reading for anyone who cares for an elderly person, whether as a professional or as a loved one, in its promotion of the role dignity and respect should play.

This accessible and detailed guide includes practical tips, checklists for best practice, and case studies from a wide range of carers offering solutions to common problems. With expert advice on personal care, daily living and addressing spiritual needs, this handbook shows you how to deliver compassionate and dignified care to older people.

Uniquely, Amanda Waring also provides support and guidance for the carer, on how to maintain energy and commitment, recognise the signs of compassion fatigue and where to get help if you need it.
