Chicken Soup for the Soul

In addition to authoring his own books, Rick Lauber is also a proud member of the Chicken Soup for The Soul family – twice! Lauber has seen two of his contributed stories to Chicken Soup for the Soul accepted for publication … you can find his stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul: It’s Christmas! and Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat. With over 250 titles, Chicken Soup for the Soul has become a highly-trusted and very familiar name in the book publishing business. With each new book they compile, Chicken Soup for the Soul receives thousands of story submissions, so being selected as a contributor is certainly an accomplishment and an honour!

Caregiver's Guide for Canadians

I don't know why this essential book is not more widely publicized. It's a lifesaver for anyone who is caring for elderly parents or relatives. Utilizing his own personal experience, the author adeptly addresses every and any issue caregivers are faced with.

I'm amazed at all the details covered in this helpful guide. Some examples of the important information addressed include sharing caregiving duties & defining roles; caregiving from away; all manner of emotional aspects; living arrangements & other responsibilities; paperwork; things to do together or when visiting; managing the medical aspects; keeping balance in your own life; and so much more. A quick flip through the Table of Contents demonstrates just how much help resides within this book. A review never quite touches all the multiple benefits that rest between the pages of such a helpful book.
