More About the Author

Emily’s first book ‘A Time To Care‘, about caring for elderly relatives, was published in 2010. It was shortlisted for an award and has recently come out in a German language version. Here’s the lowdown:

 

A Time to Care

So you’re now a carer. Your elderly parents need you as never before. Nobody’s ever trained you for what comes next, yet you’re the unofficial project manager.

Emily Ackerman looks at practical and emotional issues like finding time, coping with pressure, the sandwich generation, cutting apron-strings, memory loss and caring from a distance. Underpinning it all is helpful advice from the Bible, for isn’t it God who calls us to honour and care for our parents?

The author shares generously and sometimes humorously from her own experience, acting as a wise, sure-footed and sensitive guide. This book will be useful to all who care for elderly relatives. You are not alone!
