By Challice, Sara
Statistics show that most carers eventually fall mentally or physically unwell, brought on by the pressures of caring, often alone. Some die before the cared-for and most only learn to take care of themselves the hard way and too late. Who Cares? aims to stop this needless suffer...ing, giving practical know-how, and guiding carers to make the right choices so that they safeguard their own health and wellbeing. In making the smallest of changes and rethinking their personal perspective on their role and its value, carers can radically transform their lives and those they care for. In sharing her own story, and the experiences and case studies of other carers, Sara shows the crucial steps to wellbeing, to help carers enjoy life again. Her book is an inspiring and empathetic guide to staying healthy and happy as a carer.Read more

Sara Challice gave up her career as a graphic designer to care for her husband for 13 years after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Following a stroke, he became bedbound and needed full-time nursing care; due to the pressure, Sara became both mentally and physically unwell. She then found new strategies to regain her health and enjoy life again, even whilst caring for a terminally ill husband. Sara also got involved with local and national charities and became a trustee for the neurological charity INS (Integrated Neurological Services). Since her husband's death, Sara has been a frequent public speaker, helping transform the lives of carers, their health and wellbeing; she continues to volunteer and fundraise to promote the wellbeing of carers. She is much interviewed for media and podcasts about health and wellbeing (see www.whocares4carers.com)
