A guide for collecting resources in your community; to support those who care for the ill, the elderly, or the homebound. Congregations are in a unique position to identify caregivers and their needs, and to assist and support those caregivers. "Caring for the Caregiver" includes devotions, meeting agendas, study materials, and guidelines for surveying your congregation and community. It also includes a comprehensive, twelve-page annotated bibliography of resources on care giving. "Caring for the Caregiver" comes in a sturdy, three-ring loose-leaf binder, so you can add your own notes and materials along the way.
