The selfish pig's guide to caring: how to cope with the emotional and practical aspects of caring for someone

Marriott, Hugh; Lock, David

Six million people in the UK provide unpaid care for disabled or elderly relatives or neighbours. Oddly, though they are by definition anything but selfish, they are prone to feelings of guilt, brought on by isolation and fatigue. This book explores what carers and others should know about caring

Reviews

A splendid new books for carers.
THE TIMES||The reaction from readers of the book has been amazing.
TAKE CARE||We have needed this book for 20 years. I wish I had been able to read it when I first became a carer
Alison Ryan, Chief Executive, The Princess Royal Trust for Carers||The book is easy to read, with many amusing illustrations. It is well researched, and looks at the problems faced by carers rather than those who care for someone with a specific disease.
