Essential reading for all who care, 13 July 2012 - By
J. A. Finnerty (oxford)
In a world where we are being challenged daily by the seeming lack of compassion and kindly care in all walks of life this book is an oasis of experiences and ideas about how we get the humanity back into caring.
Amanda Waring's heartfelt accounts, based on her own dedication to older peoples dignity in care covers everything from dealing with moving into care from home and hospital discharge to fresh ideas about person-centered care. Kindly compassionate care homes where dementia is dealt with in creative and active ways ensuring emotional well being and calm.

Everyone involved with care formally and informally need to look at and question their own approaches and attitudes to help them become a better carer. Keeping motivated and empathetic isn't easy when you are exhausted and Amanda suggests practical ways to cope.

Essential reading for all who advise, care for and are being cared for regardless of age and disability. Care with dignity and respect are a right for all vulnerable people in our civilised society and this is what the book promotes. Every care setting should have a copy on hand

Dignity, 17 March 2014-
By Lynn Spires
The book "The Heart of Care" is a good book to use to explore the meaning of dignity and how to embed dignity into care practice. I am a trainer who delivers Dignity training on behalf of a local authority and I use Amanda Waring's DVDs as part of this. This book complements those tools and has given me some good ideas for activities to raise awareness about Dignity with the people who attend my training. Amanda Waring is passionate about promoting Dignity as I am and therefore I have found her book encouraging and a delight.
