Caregivers are dedicated people who support the daily needs of their loved ones. Loved ones who cannot function independently, may require this type of assistance for weeks or even years. Caregivers know that this service to others can be trying, exhausting, and exhilarating. Family members of those who have chronic or debilitating diseases and conditions, such as cancer, brain injury, Alzheimer’s Disease, and children with disabling conditions, give their time and effort to provide help to another. Caregivers interact with medical staff, look after the daily needs of their loved one, and provide spiritual and mental support. The topics covered in this book, Devotional for Caregivers: Strength Through Faith are based on actual caregiver experiences. Within the pages of this book, the reader can find topics such as supporting the physical needs of others, making sense of doctor’s reports, strengthening faith, finding joy in the little things, requesting assistance from others, and taking care of the caregiver.
Throughout the book, common themes emerge to support caregivers. The reader will find interesting Bible Scriptures, offering a Christian perspective, for handling issues that may arise. These inspiring passages will assist the caregiver in finding peace and faith as they travel their journey as a caregiver. Although caregivers may not know how long they will play this role, they take on the responsibility without any question. Taking care of others is often mentioned in the Bible and, as noted in this devotional, this self-sacrificing, highly valued, and often challenging service will ultimately be rewarded.
