Care Giving from the Heart
The vision behind this book I was inspired to write this book because of the great need in the long-term care industry to blend love, compassion, and respect when caring for residents. The spirit of love and compassion for the work we do and those we care for is vital in long-term care. This sense of caring and concern for residents can never be replaced by advancements in modern technology. Rather it is provided one-on-one, one person at a time. This book will help readers at several levels. It will help you understand the basics of long-term care giving, and will also help you assess whether you have the heart and temperament for care giving. Written in non-technical terms, the book is easy to understand even if you have no experience in care giving. In the text Ive combined my personal experiences with the realities of care giving, and even a bit of humor, while covering standard procedures in the long-term care setting. At its heart this book focuses on the basics of personal, hands-on care for those who need it most. The book was written in the spirit of love, respect, humility, and compassion. For that is where it all began, with the mother of nursing, Florence Nightingale, who demonstrated care giving from the heart.
