Help Me to Heal: A Practical Guidebook for Patients, Visitors, and Caregivers
Every hospitalization, period of convalescence, or visit to a patient can be an opportunity for healing to happen. Since most hospitalizations are sudden and unexpected, few patients and family members are prepared to take advantage of these healing opportunities. Help Me to Heal is a “just-in-time” resource that anyone can pick up and immediately use—to help realize this great healing potential. It provides the empowering tools, strategies, and resources that will enable readers to turn their bedside environment and illness experience into a sacred space and time where healing can occur.
When patients, caregivers, and family members are provided with these strategies, they become participants in the healing process—and are then able to communicate their needs to doctors and staff simply and effectively, thereby creating a healing team where everyone is moving in the same direction.
