Do you feel you are losing your love for your loved one? That would be tragic. There are many subplots in the caregiver picture, but none more tragic than the loss of love felt by caregivers, as the direct result of their constant and time-consuming, caregiving responsibilities. A highly heralded and expansive study completed by AARP and NAC noted that 56% of the caregivers surveyed had lost or were losing their affection for their patient. This Short-Book makes a strong case for the ever-present possibility of rekindling and reigniting that love.

Never before have so many dedicated and well-intended individuals volunteered to provide tender care for a spouse, family member, friend or companion. Over 44 million caregivers are providing loving service to over 60 million loved patients with far too little information and assistance. Adding to those numbers are the 10 million Millennials who are soon to join their ranks, completing a concerning, exponential rise in the number of those engaged in this remarkable work. And still, the numbers keep growing while the frustrations increase.

In what should be an environment of love and understanding, many caregivers are trapped in a deplorable, even unforgivable dilemma. The bottom line is they are worn out and many want out. This book clearly provides hope and solutions to:

1. Solve emotional issues 4. Restore confidence
2. Lessen physical trials 5. Achieve success and satisfaction
3. Find help and assistance 6. Renew hope and happiness

About the Author

John Ruppel began dealing with medical problems when his wife was seriously injured in an automobile accident at the age of 30. Then came surgeries for her back, shoulders, wrists, knees, gall bladder and bouts with shoulder pain, arthritis, Type 2 diabetes, colitis, kidney disease and finally short-term dementia. John, her committed caregiver, has found new and expanded understanding and empathy in that service.

He has had a great deal of experience counseling other individuals in caregiving situations, and has been stunned in his research about the emotional and physical trauma of caregivers generally. He has a passionate commitment to help them find new ways to overcome their stressful situations and restore their initial love.

He is a lifetime retail executive, CEO of many companies, and has written and presented over 60 business courses for western colleges and universities. He wrote a complete, small business, online curriculum for China through a western university.

John lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with his wife, surrounded locally with all five children and their families.
