A positive antidote to the negative narrative on caregiving, Positive Caregiving helps those who are caring for older adults connect with their care partners and enjoy life together through positive emotions and engaging activities.
There are more than 40 million family caregivers in the U.S. caring for an older adult. The overwhelming narrative in the U.S. is that caregiving for older adults is a burden to bear and a problem to be solved. Positive Caregiving offers an alternative, positive perspective and provides an accessible, research-based path for people who want to make the most of the caregiving experience.
At the heart of the book is an extensive list of simple activities, conversation-inspiring questions, and self-care practices designed to immerse caregivers and their care partners in gratitude, empathy, forgiveness, love, and awe. These five specific positive emotions are central to caregiving relationships and have been shown to improve health, help reduce stress, and create meaning in daily life.
There are many books available for caregivers trying to navigate day-to-day practicalities. This book focuses on the emotional journey and personal growth opportunities inherent in the caregiving experience, helping readers to embrace, celebrate, and honor this critical role in modern society.
