Geared toward every caregiver, anyone who is supporting a caregiver, or anyone who has ever wished they could do something to help, “Who Cares” offers compassionate insight into the realities of being in a caring role.

When author Joan Wilson-Jones’ partner Philip was diagnosed with an aggressive, metastasized prostate cancer in 2002, she quickly found that despite her personal resources and professional training, she was not ready for her new role as a caregiver. She realized this newfound responsibility could potentially stretch her to her limits. And she was right.

In her new book, “Who Cares: Help for those Caring for Seriously Ill Loved Ones at Home” (published by Balboa Press AU), Wilson-Jones provides a support guide for caregivers based on her experience caring for her husband.

Included in this heartfelt memoir are ideas and suggestions to help friends and family understand ways in which they can help care for others.

“We don’t prepare for the role of caring for seriously ill loved ones at home; it just arrives upon us,” Wilson-Jones says. “It is very difficult to develop strategies and arrange help when you are in the middle of the crisis. This book does that for you. It’s a support manual, a practical guide and an essential lifeline.”

Geared toward every caregiver, anyone who is supporting a caregiver, or anyone who has ever wished they could do something to help, “Who Cares” offers compassionate insight into the realities of being in a caring role.
