Learning to Let Go: The transition into residential care [9780745953984]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
There comes a time in life when it is difficult to live independently, and homes of many years and many memories must be left behind. But despite the commonness of this life-changing transition, little has been written on how to prepare one's loved ones or oneself for the challenge. Full of empathy and the wisdom of experience, in Learning to Let Go Penelope Wilcock guides us through the process - practical and emotional - of preparing for residential care, tackling the difficult questions which will be faced by elderly people, and their families. How can families and staff offer the best care? What are the marks of a well-run home? What attitudes should you expect from the staff of a good home? This book shows how an elderly person can be helped to retain their identity, and at the same time to let go .
AUTHOR: Pen Wilcock is the author of The Hawk and the Dove series and many other books such as In Celebration of Simplicity and 100 Stand-Alone Bible Studies. She has many years of experience as a Methodist minister and has worked as a hospice and school chaplain. She has five adult daughters and lives in Hastings, East Sussex. She writes a successful blog: Kindred of the Quiet Way.
