A Lifesaving Resource For Women In The Unenviable Role Of Primary Long-term Caregiver

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Alameda, CA – Sixty-six percent of all caregivers in this country are women, a number that is increasing as the population ages. Many of these women are so caught up — even trapped — in this role they seriously neglect their own needs, which can lead to physical, emotional and financial burnout. In The Caregiving Wife’s Handbook: Caring for Your Seriously Ill Husband, Caring for Yourself (Hunter House Publishers) by Diana B. Denholm, PhD, women will find the support and tools they need to get through this stressful time with compassion while keeping themselves emotionally whole.
 
Since caring for an ill husband has traditionally been seen as a “wifely duty,” the caregiving role becomes especially complex when the husband is dying of a long-term illness. Every day brings a new set of challenges, demands, adjustments, and often unwelcome changes. It is a time when support and clear thinking are desperately needed — and this book can help! 

As the primary caregiver for her husband for over ten years, Dr. Denholm learned firsthand how little help is available to women caring for dying husbands. Over time, she combined this experience with her training as a practicing therapist and communication expert to develop the tools and strategies she shares in this book.

Dr. Denholm’s twin goals are to help wives communicate with reluctant spouses about important issues and to take care of their own physical, emotional and practical wellbeing. She includes real-life examples from six case histories, stories that help readers discover they are not alone and that many of their emotional responses, including negative ones, are common and normal.

Receiving five-star reviews on Amazon.com, Dr. Denholm and her timely book were also recently featured in a lengthy article in the New York Times; drawing much-needed attention to a critical issue that affects millions of women yet is hardly ever discussed or explored in social discussion or in the media.

The Caregiving Wife’s Handbook addresses sensitive issues with insight and directness and offers clear-headed solutions. The helpful list of 50 Do’s and Don’ts and information on how to manage emotions, how to approach awkward subjects, and how to negotiate hot-button issues are practical and empower women to bring more balance, free time and even fun into their lives.

Diana Denholm, PhD, LMHC, holds a doctorate in psychology, is a board-certified medical psychotherapist, and has been in private practice for over thirty years. She has pioneered many of the communication and self-care tools she shares in this book and she has used these methods successfully with her many clients.

Changing The World – One Person At A Time

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Houston, TX – Three American women put their faith into action in a remote village in West Africa and proved that we can change our world for the better – one person at a time. Author and Episcopal Priest, Elizabeth Geitz, was one of these women who made the pilgrimage to an orphanage in Cameroon, West Africa, and in her latest book, I Am That Child: Changing Hearts & Changing the World (Morehouse), she shares with readers how it changed her own life forever.

Masterfully written, her incredible journey of faith is told with humor and passion as she relates the story of Sister Jane Mankaa, considered by many to be the Mother Teresa of Africa, and what this remarkable woman has managed to do for the 130 children in the orphanage who call her mother.

Always focusing on justice issues, the writings of Elizabeth Geitz speak to people with the passion to make a positive difference in the world. The author makes the political personal in this hard-to-put-down narrative about global poverty, AIDS, sexism and race relations, illustrating that cross-cultural relationships among people of faith can change our world…one person at a time. By taking an in-depth look at race and cultural privilege, the author finds hope for reconciliation back home.

I Am That Child would be a great tool for church study groups and social justice/outreach campaigns and includes study and resource guides to help readers engage global poverty efforts and build community – whether it be across the street or across continents.

The compelling frankness of I Am That Child goes right to the heart of any questions we might have and makes us want to put our faith into action – even if it means reaching beyond our wallets or outside of a comfortable lifestyle.

The Reverend Canon Elizabeth Geitz is an Episcopal priest, author of numerous books, and is co-editor of Women’s Uncommon Prayers. The former Canon for Ministry Development and Deployment in the Diocese of New Jersey, she is an award-winning writer and popular speaker who works closely with Sister Jane Mankaa and the Good Shepherd Home Board in Cameroon.

I Am That Child can be ordered through any religious or secular bookstore; through online booksellers or direct from Cokesbury Christian stores at www.Cokesbury.com, or by calling 1-800-672-1789. It is available in print and digital editions including Nook, Kindle and Google e-Book.

Elizabeth Geitz’s books have been hailed by people as diverse as Desmond Tutu, Phyllis Tickle, and John Berendt. For more information, please visit: www.elizabethgeitz.com

Prevention Rather Than Reaction Is Crucial In Keeping Our Home and Loved Ones Safe

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Roberts, WI – Home safety accidents disable more than twelve million people each year and are the fifth leading cause of death. Obviously there is a statistical gap between what we think we know and what we actually know about home safety. Since a staggering 45% of all unintentional deaths occur in and around the home, this makes the home environment one of the most hazardous settings we inhabit!

Dan Hannan, CSP, has been an educator and trainer on safety issues for more than twenty years. As an expert, he knows there are immediate things people can do to increase safety for themselves and their families, but how can we do this if we aren’t even aware there is a problem?

In his one-of-a-kind book, Preventing Home Accidents: A Quick & Easy Guide (Hunter House), Hannan identifies the hazards that exist in every home and recommends safety practices that will help homeowners reduce lethal accidents by providing information adapted from proven techniques used by safety professionals.

Prevention is the key and, with that in mind, Hannan’s book is filled with anecdotal descriptions and examples that offer way more than “safety tips” because it educates the homeowner in how to control risk through hazard identification. Topics include everything from fall hazards to electrical safety, fire prevention, safe chemical use, hand and power tool safety, and many others. Each chapter identifies problems and illustrates safety practices, providing action items for proactive prevention. There are “cheat sheets” at the end of each chapter to enable readers to be able to do a home safety audit themselves, giving references to links and other resources.

Since statistics show that 75% of all unintentional injuries and deaths in the home hinge on our behavior and on the decisions we make, it’s evident that the first and most important home safety decision we should make is to improve our hazard recognition skills and become more safety conscious.

Homeowners cannot rely on product recalls or state and federal agencies to gauge the safety of their home or their loved ones – they must do it themselves. With the simple techniques offered in this unique book, readers will be given the tools necessary to take charge of this important issue and hopefully prevent accidents from ever happening.

Dan Hannan, CSP, is an educator and trainer on safety issues, and an authorized OSHA instructor and Hazardous Material Manager who routinely trains construction and general industry workforces. He has been a safety, health and environmental professional for over twenty years and has written several articles for national trade publications.
