To Dwell in Your House: Vignettes and Spiritual Reflections on Caregiving at Home addresses the large population in need of more resources for the sacred work of caregiving. With current trends in healthcare, the objective is to keep patients out of hospitals, and to provide care at home. And yet, there are so few resources for caregivers in the home. Going beyond clinical pointers for caregiving, this book offers encouragement and inspiration, with thirty original and compelling vignettes. While these stories arise out of a professional chaplain’s actual spiritual care visits, the insights and wisdom are relevant to anyone who faces the struggles and joys of being in a caregiving relationship. Additionally, the book provides contemplations to guide caregivers in their own personal growth, reflections to share with those patients who would benefit from spiritual reassurance, and theory upon which caregivers can build a solid foundation to support their efforts into the future. While caregiving can be a lonely business, through this book, caregivers will attain a sense of camaraderie with other caregivers. Besides giving practical strategies for interacting meaningfully and effectively with patients and their families, this book affirms the gift of caregiving, and also understands the challenges associated with it.
