Editorial Reviews

CBA Marketplace
"Shelly explores spirituality's significance in physical caregiving. She discusses what spiritual care is, how to do it, and how to care for the caregiver. As both a nurse and a doctor, Shelly is in a unique position to discuss this subject. Illustrations, exercises, and charts pepper the material. Recommend this book for people dealing with long-term, difficult caregiving in the home, church body, health-care facilities, or community."
Christian Retailing
"Not written strictly for healthcare professionals, but for anyone involved in reaching out as Christian caregivers to family members, friends or neighbors. Shelly, editor of the Journal of Christian Nursing, takes a compassionate approach to caring for the whole person. This approach also enables the caregiver to share the burden of responsibility by developing a spiritual care team to aid the patient. In today's society, people are more open to spirituality than they have been in the past, so the author urges the reader not to hesitate in sharing the faith and love that will help the afflicted through the trials of illness. Home healthcare workers, pastors and church lay visitors, as well as family caregivers, would benefit from reading this book."
