A practical tool for carers

Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A book offering practical information, advice and support to people who care for someone with coronary heart disease has been published by Age Concern England. Caring for Someone with a Heart Problem, by Toni Battison, is described by Age Concern’s director general Sally Greengross as a valuable tool for nurses, social workers and people who train all those caring for heart patients. “All too often we forget that carers have needs too,” Mrs Greengross said. “The lack of information and support available can cause them huge stress. This new book offers practical ideas for reducing the headache of caring for someone with a heart problem.” Caring for Someone with a Heart Problem is available, price £6.99 (p&p free), from Age Concern England, Head Office, Astral House, 1268 London Road, London SW16 4ER, and various bookshops.
