You Don't Have to Do It Alone
Whether you're prepared for it or not, chances are you'll take on the role of caregiver when a family member or friend is affected by a serious illness or injury, or when you find your elderly parent needs help. As you'll soon discover, the range of tasks and responsibilities involved are overwhelming. Share The Care offers a sensible and loving solution: a unique group approach that can turn a circle of ordinary people into a powerful caregiving team. Share The Care shows you how to:

  • Create a caregiver "family" from friends, real family members, neighbors, coworkers, and acquaintances.
  • Hold a meeting to organize your group, and introduce members to the Share The Care systems that guarantee every job will be done and no one person will have to do too much.
  • Discover the hidden talents within the group, make the most of their resources, cope with group issues, and stay together in the face of adversity.


Included here are valuable guidelines, compassionate suggestions, and a simple-to-use workbook section that together offer support to free the patient from worry and the caregivers from burnout. Share The Care offers friends and family the best answer ever to the frequently asked question "What can I do?"

About the Author:

Share The Care was born when twelve people -- including Sheila Warnock and the late Cappy Capossela -- came together to help their terminally ill friend and stayed together caring for her for three and a half years. The authors documented the systems developed during that period for others to follow.

Tragically, in 2002, Sheila spearheaded a group for Cappy when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Following Cappy's death, Sheila founded a nonprofit organization ShareTheCaregiving in Cappy's memory.  She built a web site (www.sharethecare.org) and updated and revised the book for a second edition.  

ShareTheCaregiving’s mission is to improve the “quality of life” of persons who are seriously ill, disabled, or experiencing the challenges of aging, and to reduce stress, depression, isolation and economic hardship often suffered by their family caregivers.   The organization offers a community educational program that includes a training for health professionals and clergy, workshops for caregivers, and Share The Care Stations.  E-mail and telephone support is available to caregivers, and health professionals.  In the works, is a web-based program that will allow Share The Care groups to operate on-line. Check the web site for information and announcements.

From Booklist:

Preparing for the serious illness of someone near and dear is certainly prudent, but actually doing it seems off-putting and even morbid to many, which makes Caposella and Warnock's book vitally important. Writing pleasantly and calmly and organizing their material admirably, they advise dealing with caregiver burnout by forming an "alternate family" and spreading the responsibilities and strain of providing care to the stricken among them. They include sample forms, checklists, and scripted passages for use in forming such support groups. Theirs is a highly structured approach that in times of crisis may prove invaluable. Although aimed at use by organized groups, it may also be of great value to individuals in need of a plan of action or background information. Capossela and Warnock's meticulous coverage of every phase and eventuality of a sensitive situation and the fact that the book is easy to use as a reference make it outstanding in a crowded field.
