Here is a taste of what you can expect from the book ….

“Modesty is a big issue for most, and so is their pride. Show your love and enhance the patient’s recovery by allowing them to perform as many tasks as they can, which means understanding the limitations relevant to their circumstances. For example, if they can still function normally with their upper body, then they can probably manage their way around the kitchen to prepare themselves a basic meal. You can assist by ensuring you provide the right food to allow them to do this. If they need to sit down to do this, make sure the items they’ll need are within reach”.

“Maintaining good hygiene is not only important for good health but is also imperative for good self esteem. Injury and illness can turn this daily task into an exhausting and difficult task for both patient and carer, but with some simple techniques and equipment, you can both make it easier. To help your patient wash and dress each day, ensure soap, towel, toothbrush etcetera are all within easy reach. If they can get out of bed but can’t stand for any length of time, a plastic chair can be placed in the shower recess or bath, or a purpose built shower chair can be obtained. To prevent slippage ensure the feet have rubber stoppers….”
