There is an army of people in this country with elderly or disabled dependants fighting a valiant battle against isolation, frustration–even acute depression. And as longevity increases, more and more people will fall into the caring trap. But need it be a trap? Jennifer Pulling has interviewed dozens of carers and includes her experience of looking after her ailing mother for many years. In telling their stories she points out the pitfalls – emotional, financial and physical – of the caring role and provides practical advice on how to cope with them. More than anything else, carers need support and the vital knowledge that they are not alone. This sympathetic book provides it.
