The Conscious Caregiver by Linda Abbit guides adults how to behave as responsible caregivers when a loved one (a parent or spouse) is living through the frightening and poignant moments of the final stages of life. Many excellent books help new parents learn how to care for newborns and children. These are often best sellers because everyone wants to be the best parent they can become. Too few books help adults prepare for the death of a loved one. Linda Abbit covers the subject of conscious caregiving from A to Z. The subtitle A Mindful Approach to Caring for Your Loved One Without Losing Yourself shows you the wisdom of Abbit. Conscious Caregiver serves two purposes; the first is, giving world class care to your loved one, and the second purpose is to do this important work while preserving your emotional, physical, and spiritual life. Abbit has written a masterpiece. Get yourself a copy, study it and recommend it to friends and family members . . . some day you will have to implement the care of a loved one who is dying. You want to approach this solemn duty using the best methods to support the care receiver. You want to approach this sacred duty keeping yourself in the best health you can retain. You cannot be of much service to your loved one if you become weak because of your loving care giving. Linda Abbit has been there with her parents and is an experienced eldercare advisor, I urge you to study this book and heed her wisdom.
