Coming soon: Caring for an Elderly Parent

Last year, I was asked to write a booklet about caring for older people at home, by Pilgrims' Friend Society. Pilgrims' Friend Society is a Christian charity which runs homes for older people and also publishes resources with information and practical advice on caring for older people. This is a subject very close to my heart. Additionally, I was delighted to write for the Society as my Mother had been cared for,ably and lovingly, in one of the homes in the few years before her death.

My booklet Caring for an Elderly Parent: When Grandma Came to stay...  should be available from Pilgrims' Friend Society around the beginning of February. I pray that it will be useful for people who are caring for older people at home and for those who are considering taking this step.

  1. Hi Sarah,

    I think your booklet be very useful, because like homsechooling, it seems increasingly necessary to care for our family (elderly and children) by bringing them home. I don't have responsibility to care for my elderly parents yet but it is an inevitable process so I'd appreciate hearing your advice and experience.

    On another note, I just thought I'd let you know that I've nominated you for the Liebster Award (http://thetigerchronicle.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/liebster-award-nomination.html). Feel free to play along or if you'd rather not, that's ok too. Have a nice day! :-)

  2. It is great that you were able to share your knowledge and experience about this, Sarah! Thank you for mentioning it :-)
