Overview

Caregivers have been overlooked. There are many books covering bereavement for the terminally ill and their families. However, due attention has not been paid to those family members and friends who faithfully and selflessly care for the terminally ill person until he or she passes on. Author Roy Harris faithfully stood by his wife of thirty-three years as the two navigated the uncharted waters of breast cancer, ultimately resulting in her death. Roy's sixteen years of experience as a pastor, someone who has been there for countless families going through the death and dying process, adds special insight to the helpful Caregiver Principles he provides at the end of each chapter. Caring for the Caregiver is a priceless gift of grace providing support, empathy, and edifying advice for the caregiver.

Roy Harris has done a marvelous job in expressing the practical needs of someone caring for a loved one. This easy-to-read book outlines suggestions and encouragement that will help anyone facing that very difficult time in their lives. Caring for the Caregiver is a great book for anyone who has the responsibility of attending to a person who is sick or injured long-term. Laymen and medical personnel alike will benefit from reading it.

"Caring for the Caregiver" may very well become the Bible for caregivers. Roy Harris has written a readable true story conveying his insights as he walked the long, lonely road of being a caregiver to his wife who battled cancer for three years. The book poignantly and courageously conveys the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of being a caregiver and strikes a good balance in the heartfelt, yet practical, side of caregiving. A must read for those of us who are presently on the caregiving journey as well as those who are being cared for.

Although I've never been a caregvier, I have known and talked to some who have been. Preacher Roy's book touched my heart in such a big way, and it gave a deeper look into the stuggles of everyday life for them. I read things that I had no idea were as bad as it was. Even when times didn't look so bright, they still trusted in God to help them through. If you're a caregiver or not this book will give you or someone you know great encouragment. This book is such a great tool, not only of encouragment but helpful information. So if you do purchase this book you will not be disappointed.

I read this book while caring for my husband after brain surgery and duing his cancer treatment. Someone out there truly knows my feelings, my fears, my prayers! He puts words to feelings I have not been able to express. What a help and a blessing this book has been. Everyone will know someone who will benefit from this book. Most all of us are caregivers at some point in our lives, whether it be a spouse, parent, child or friend. While most books are written to encourage the patient, Mr. Harris looks into the hearts of those that are expected to encourage and tend to the needs of loved ones while they are ill. This is not just information but knowledge that comes from experience. It is a touching and moving book full of wisdom and insight all the while telling a wonderful love story. An execellent read for caregivers and for those who would support and council them. Also a wonderful gift for someone who is hospital sitting. I highly recommend this book.

I purchased a copy of Caring for the Caregiver because I personally know the author, Roy W. Harris. Once I read it, I quickly realized that this book stands to be the greatest help, outside of the Bible, to those caring for loved ones or friends. I appreciate the raw emotions, transparency and honesty with which Mr. Harris writes. The Caregiver Principles at the end of each chapter provides guidance and help as one seeks to apply the lessons from each chapter. I highly recommend every caregiver read this book.

Roy Harris has exemplified the true meaning of the word "Caregiver." Caring for the Caregiver is a great source of inter-strength, wisdom, patience, spiritual growth and most of all, love and dedication. Caregivers need care too! They need direction and discernment in keeping themselves emotionally and physically strong in order to give the proper care. Reading this book, caregivers and others can learn and relate from Preacher Harris' true experience and helpful principals he has shared. What a great example of encouragement to those who feel helpless or discouraged while tending the care of loved ones. I wish this book was available during the years I was caregiver for my Mother. Add this book to your collection... and give it to others to help keep their hearts full of joy, hope and satisfaction. Great book.... heartfelt, personal and assurance of God's love for me! Thanks Preacher Harris!

If you are a Caregiver in any way, this book is a keeper indeed! Personally speaking from hands on experience, sometimes the Caregiver needs a Caregiver and this book was full of inspiration, laughter, tears and many helpful resources for me. I highly recommend this book to fill the hands of caregivers everywhere! Roy shared his own personal experience to allow the reader to associate with situations and then moves to bring the reader tremendous help, hope and healing with each chapter. I was indeed blessed to have a copy in my hands. I am so thankful that Roy's hands were moved to write this book to give care to the Caregivers! Thank you Roy!
