The word 'carer' is a fairly recent coinage, but many of us are involved one way or another in caring for others -family carers, health and social workers, teachers etc.- and the importance of quality care in the lives of many people is increasingly recognised.
In Who Cares? Catherine McCann asks who are the carers and how do they care? What can be done to improve and enhance the care that they give? She believes that compassion, and the relationship between carer and cared-for, are at the heart of successful caring. She combines her considerable professional experience with a deep personal compassion, to offer advice, inspiration, consolation and encouragement to all who care.
There is a comprehensive appendix of organisations and support groups, with addresses and phone numbers, which all carers will find invaluable.
