Sooner or later many of us will have to 'go into care'. How do we, and those who are involved in our care, make wise choices? This book is written both for those preparing to enter residential care and for those (professionals, volunteers, pastors, family members and friends) who can offer support to ease the struggle of transition. Learning to Let Go acknowledges and explores the intense experience of grief and bereavement that surrounds the relinquishment of independent living. The book explores how to ensure that those going into care retain their identity and are not reduced to peripheral status as 'patient' or 'resident'. Covering practical details from how to choose a home to what to pack when moving, this book will help facilitate a smooth transition at this emotional time of upheaval.
Pen Wilcock is the author of The Hawk and the Dove series and many other books such as In Celebration of Simplicity and 100 Stand-Alone Bible Studies. She has many years of experience as a Methodist minister and has worked as a hospice and school chaplain. She has five adult daughters and lives in Hastings, East Sussex. She writes a successful blog: Kindred of the Quiet Way.
