Caring for someone with a long-term illness is the first book in the Support for Friends and Family series from Manchester University Press. Caring for, or being close to someone who cares for a person with a long-term illness can be very difficult, and not knowing how to help can be frustrating. The book is designed to help friends, family and carers understand the practical and personal issues that face carers; providing useful suggestions on how to understand the carer's role and ways to make the experience easier for the carer and those around them. This is less of a how to do book and more a selection of chapters giving advice on things to say, things to do, and where to look for advice and practical help when needed. Carers and their friends and family will find this book an invaluable resource on how to act (or simply give peace and quiet) in the most welcome and appropriate way. -- .

Review:

This book is essential reading. John Costello's style is uncomplicated and personable, encouraging and reflective. He combines practical advice for coping day to day with sensitive discussion of the often avoided subjects of end of life care and the complexity of pain management. It also contains a wealth of information about sources of support and readers will find that they return to consult the book time and time again. Pat Ridgway, Motor Neurone Disease Association
