About this product
- DescriptionSix million people in the UK provide unpaid care for disabled or elderly relatives or neighbours. Oddly, though they are by definition, anything but selfish, they are prone to feelings of guilt, brought on by isolation and fatigue. This book explores what carers and others should know about caring.
- Author BiographyAround the time symptoms of Huntington's Disease began to appear in their lives, Hugh and Cathie Marriott sold their house, bought a sailing boat, and embarked on what was to become a nine-year voyage of discovery. By the time Cathie could no longer get in or out of their small dinghy or safely clamber on board their boat, they had visited 40 countries and sailed almost the whole way round the world. After moving ashore again Hugh settled down to write about the experiences of both parts of the voyage. In this book he describes the reasons for setting sail, the difficulties of adjusting simultaneously to a new life and the onset of a debilitating disease, and the responses of the people they encountered in other boats and other lands.

Light, amusing read but informative
It's difficult to find an informative read from the carers prospective always the being cared for. I highly recommend this book with it's light hearted outlook on "you're not alone"
