Summary
  • "Family caregiving has its challenges: emotional overload, time constraints, anxiety, burnout, missed work, adult sibling conflicts, and marital issues. But caregivers also grow personally and spiritually by ensuring the well-being of a loved one. In AARP Meditations for Caregivers, clinical psychologists Barry J. Jacobs and Julia L. Mayer blend emotional and spiritual motivation to maximize the gains of caregiving while minimizing the strains. The book helps readers view their caregiving as a mission from the heart, complete with chapters on accepting your feelings, embracing rewards, seeking support, and managing stress. Each section offers three-part meditations for caregivers: an inspirational quote, an anecdote drawn from the authors' personal or clinical experience, and direct psychological or hands-on advice to foster coping and life satisfaction"--
  • "Being a caregiver brings strain, including burnout, depression, anxiety, missed work, adult sibling conflicts, and marital issues; but caregivers can often also grow personally and spiritually through providing care to a loved one. In AARP Meditations for Caregivers, clinical psychologists Barry Jacobs and Julie Mayer blend emotional and spiritual inspiration to minimize caregiving's strains and maximize the gains. The book helps the reader to understand caregiving as a mission and encourages her to keep one's values in mind even in the midst of caregiving stress. Divided into sections by topic of interest, each section offers meditations for caregivers. Each meditation will have three parts: an inspirational quotation at the top by a literary figure, spiritual leader, business guru, or another cultural influencer, or by a caregiver; a short, poignant story about caregivers or a telling caregiving moment drawn from our clinical and personal experiences followed by brief commentary with lessons to be learned or inspiration to be drawn; and at the end, direct psychological or hands-on advice to foster increased coping and life satisfaction"--
