  • Called To Care Third Edition

    $32.00

    As nursing and healthcare continue to change, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. Offering a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call, this thoroughly revised third edition of a classic text includes practical features for educators, students, and practitioners.

    Nursing is a vocation: a calling from God to care for others. The role of the nurse originally grew out of a holistic Christian understanding of humans as created in the image of God. Yet as nursing and healthcare continue to change, the effects have proven disorienting to many. Now more than ever, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. For over twenty years, Called to Care has served as a unique and essential resource for nurses. In this third edition Judith Allen Shelly and Arlene B. Miller, now joined by coauthor Kimberly H. Fenstermacher, present a definition for nursing based on a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call: Nursing is a ministry of compassionate and restorative care for the whole person, in response to God’s grace, which aims to promote and foster optimum health (shalom) and bring comfort in suffering and death for anyone in need. Focusing on the features of the nursing metaparadigm-person, health, environment, and nursing-they provide a framework for understanding how the Christian faith relates to the many aspects of a nurse’s work, from theory to everyday practice. This new edition of Called to Care is thoroughly revised for today’s nurses, including updated examples and new content on topics such as cultural competency, palliative care, and the current state of healthcare and nursing education. Each chapter features learning objectives, discussion questions, case studies, and theological reflections from Scripture to help readers engage and apply the content. For educators, students, and practitioners throughout the field of nursing, this classic text continues to provide clarity and wisdom for living out their calling.

  • In The Lingering Light

    $14.99

    Alzheimer’s is a particularly cruel disease. It robs us of the people we love–slowly, subtly, but unrelentingly. Our love for them is tested as their needs increase and their recall decreases, and our own needs suffer neglect as more and more of our time and attention is given to our loved one. Cynthia Fantasia is a caregiver. In this deeply understanding and empowering work she walks you through the landscape of caregiving–for your loved one and for yourself. She introduces you to friends and fellow travelers who offer their own words of empathy and insight. And she slowly, subtly, but unrelentingly empowers you to live well as you care for your loved one in the lingering light.

  • Village Medical Manual 7th Edition 2 Volume Set

    $79.99

    Village Medical Manual is a two-volume guide to health care in developing countries where expert medical care can be hard to find. Its intended use is by those who are required, by location and circumstances, to render medical care for which they are not professionally trained. Reader-friendly and easy to navigate, this manual will allow the reader to find the best treatments and procedures in a variety of medical situations. Each volume includes illustrations and instructions that assist in diagnosing and treating patients. Volume I includes medical principles and procedures for basic care and emergency situations. Volume II includes symptom, disease, drug, and regional indices to assist the reader in step-by-step diagnoses and treatment of patients. This useful two-volume guide is a handy reference for all lay persons who need the skills to meet health care challenges in developing areas.

    With Village Medical Manual, Dr. Vanderkooi has targeted a frequently neglected category of medical caregivers: people who are well-educated in disciplines other than medicine living in rural areas of developing countries. These reluctant healers are frustrated by the unfamiliar jargon of books written for physicians and the lack of depth of health guides written for indigenous people. Through thorough research, extensive experience, common sense, logical arguments of contents, well-defined procedural plans and the use of everyday words, Dr. Vanderkooi has hit her mark very well.

  • Reluctant Caregiver : Navigating The Turmoil Of The Sandwich Generation

    $17.99

    Some say courage is fear that has said its prayers.

    Bobbi may be married with two grown children, but the child inside still fears and resents the attacks and tirades of her ninety-year-old mother, now afflicted with dementia. While still a teenager, Bobbi was disowned by her mother. How can she now take on the role of caregiver?

    Bobbi seeks escape from the task, but gradually realizes that Jesus has a greater goal in mind than teaching her to be a caregiver. Crisis after crisis forces Bobbi to turn to Jesus for help, all the while testing to see if his promises can be taken literally. Is he in charge? Will he work things out? Is his plan perfect?

    Nancy’s erratic behaviour and moods punctuate the ensuing year. Stripped of any illusion that she can cope on her own, Bobbi finds her faith rewarded in unpredictable ways. Her journey of anxiety and failure also comes with insights and small but important victories. She tells the story candidly, often humorously, as she comes to a deeper understanding of dementia, her mother, and most of all, Jesus.

    Read and weep. Laugh and pray. Gain courage and perspective of your own!
