Her case studies and exercises give her advice a real-world edge. Caring for others can be both stressful and joyful.

"Author Linda Abbit has a host of practical experience that inspired her to write The Conscious Caregiver. Her book is tremendous. It is well-written, well-organized, and offers a framework for conscious caregiving. The Conscious Caregiver offers practical and logical suggestions for when caregivers may be too confused or stressed to see them on their own. This book should be widely read. Nursing homes, doctors, and churches should make copies available for caregivers. People who provide volunteer care may often feel that they are alone in that world, but they are not, and do not have to be."

This compassionate guide emphasizes the importance of caring for yourself while you simultaneously care for a parent or other aged relative." - Caring.com
