"Professional carer" - it's almost a contradiction in terms.
Let down by the 'system' Ann Benton, aided by a team of helpers, charts the journey of her father-in-law from unsatisfactory hospital care, through spectacularly absent 'care in the community', to being looked after at home.
In eight easy-to-digest chapters she gives a Christian perspective on caring for your aged parent as well as giving practical tools to help those, who find themselves in the same situation, negotiate the difficulties more easily.
Ann brings out the positive benefits of caring for those unable to look after themselves in her light-hearted, poignant and straightforward manner.
In an aging population virtually all of us will have to face the issues that are presented in this book. We should be thankful that we will have such wise and clear advice when we get to that moment.
