product description

“Every day thousands of unsung heroes bring CARING and COMPASSION to the lives of millions. Their names are never featured in the headlines, but our world would be a much darker place without them.” ~ Charles Devlin

Caregivers are special people…selfless individuals who touch lives with compassion and care, sometimes in some very trying circumstances. We should take time to recognize those who have made the commitment to serve others. In her latest book, Heart of a Caregiver, Paula J. Fox does just that.

An excerpt from Heart of a Caregiver by Paula J. Fox

Most of us at some point in our lives experience what it’s like to be a Caregiver for a limited time…caring for a small child or a family member who is either sick or is recovering from an accident or surgery, or helping with the care of an aging or disabled loved one. During such times we begin to understand the physical demands and emotional strain related to the constant CARE of another individual.

It helps us gain valuable insight into the level of patience, compassion and dedication required from the special people who make the choice to commit their lives in service to those who are hurting, to those who need comfort and encouragement and to those who need compassionate loving care 24/7.

This book is written as a tribute to those who have made the choice to serve others and to be a “healing presence” in our world. Caregivers are…the professionals in the healthcare field…the nurses, CNAs, and other personnel in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospice care, etc., as well as the multitude of husbands, wives, adult children and others who find themselves in a position of CARING for loved ones in their homes.

The hours are long and exhausting. The work is hard and never-ending…and there is personal pain and sacrifice involved in CARING. This is where true Heroes are found.

There is nothing to compare with the Beauty and Significance of this HEART that gives so unselfishly in service to others.

Great book for caregivers to let them see how impo
I have purchased a few of these books and have given them to different staff members that seem to need a reminder of the importance oh their jobs. I also use the quotes in this book on the back of cards I hand out depending on the situation I feel at the time I give one out. I have also used other books from Simple Truths in this same manner.
Thank you Simple Truths!
    Bottom Line:
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Brighten Someone's Day
    I purchased this book for one of our clients who is a caregiver for her husband. I think this will brighten her day and put a smile on her face.

        Excellent Gift for Caregivers
        We ordered this book to give as a gift at nursing homes. The response has been very positive! Recently an Administrator told us that this was just what she had been looking for to use to keep her staff focused on providing the best possible care to their residents.
          Bottom Line:
          Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

          Everyone is a caregiver and will love it
          This made a super gift for the Community Advisory Board of our skilled nursing facility. These folks represent many varied professions within our community...and all are caregivers in one way or another...city manager, police chief, ambulance service, dean of the nursing school, facility entertainer, pastor, guardianship director, council on aging director, etc. They volunteer their time and keep us in touch with our community. We always give each a gift at Christmas. This book was appreciated by everyone!
