Foreword by Jacqueline Piepenhagen - Artist of the Quill
Author Daniel Jones has proven that no matter what life throws at you if you have a positive attitude and the will to find purpose in your life you will move forward to live life to its fullest.
Daniel Jones exceptional drive to overcome the adversities in his life has led him to not only tell his life’s story of the massive stroke he suffered in 2006, but to reach out and spread the word that life is worth living. In this book he focuses on caregiving.
There is no “bling” in this book only the hard core reality of care giving and what it encompasses. Care giving is not for everyone. I believe this book will inform and guide you as to what is needed to be a wonderful care giver.
Daniel has laid out this self-guide from firsthand experience. Here he tells about the ins and outs; the ups and downs that can follow after a diagnosis’s of stroke. He doesn’t stop there. He guides the reader through the rehabilitation process including lifestyle changes that must be met. This book will inspire as well as inform anyone on what to expect and of what is expected of the caregiver on an ongoing bases to avoid burn out.
I have lived the roll of Care Giver for more than 20 years in the institutional setting and in the private sector. If this book had been written years ago, I feel the lives of many caregivers could have been changed in a more positive way for both them and the stroke victim to prevent inevitable burn out that sent many stroke victims to be institutionalized.
