Mindfulness For Carers

RRP $14.99

Carers are particularly vulnerable to feeling stressed, worried and worn down by the vast demands that often come with caregiving, be they physical, psychological or emotional. Mindfulness can be enormously beneficial to carers, whether professional or voluntary, as a means of developing greater inner stability, resilience and gaining more control over their thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Mindfulness is an evidence-based approach that is proven to help protect against stress, anxiety, depression and burnout. Dr Cheryl Rezek provides an accessible introduction to mindfulness, and explains how simple mindfulness practices and psychological concepts can be used to manage the day-to-day demands of caring effectively, helping caregivers to gain a greater sense of control and maintain a more positive and balanced outlook.

The book includes easy-to-use and enjoyable mindfulness exercises, short enough to fit into a busy day, as well as accompanying audio tracks to support and guide the reader through these exercises. An essential read for all those involved in caring for people with acute or long-term health and mental health conditions, disabilities and other support needs, including relatives and other informal carers as well as professional medical, health and social care staff.

The Clinical Presentation Of Parkinson's Disease And The Dyadic Relationship Between Patients And Carers

RRP $363.99

Providing care for someone with a neurodegenerative condition such as Parkinson's disease requires an integrated approach, taking into account the needs of the person with the disorder and family members most closely involved in their care. This is only possible with an understanding of the complex nature of Parkinson's disease, extending beyond the management of the motor disorder. It also requires an appreciation of the significant neuropsychological changes accompanying the disease, which affect the person's psychosocial adaptation to the condition and appear to have greatest impact for the well-being of carers. This book offers a comprehensive study of Parkinson's disease, providing critical evaluation and integration at various levels of enquiry, whilst keeping the neuropsychological aspects of the condition at the forefront of interest. It emphasizes the importance of the dyadic relationship between those suffering from the illness and their spouse carers, who are thrust into a dynamic care-giving process, in which both play an active role. Drawing together the intricate threads that underlie this process, the study provides evidence to suggest that carers' perceptions of the psychological changes affecting their spouse are of primary importance to shaping their experience of care-giving. The study is designed to go beyond a merely descriptive approach, seeking and providing plausible explanations for various conundrums in care-giving, which may help to inform intervention strategies aimed at alleviating some of its more difficult aspects for carers.
