In The Art and Science of Caregiving, Annelise Schinzinger helps readers become skilled companions and caregivers.
The science of caregiving is essential to support physical function; the art of caregiving nourishes both the heart and the soul. The author presents very practical advice on how to support someone who needs assistance with daily activities. She also shows us, using her own stories as illustration, how a working relationship built on mutual respect may grow into one of shared affection and, with patience and compassion, these elements can even progress naturally into a deeply loving connection.
