It guides readers through every stage of care, from explaining different kinds of strokes to understanding personality changes brought on by the illness. Other topics covered include how to prevent strokes from recurring, making the home safe and comfortable, returning to work after a stroke, and preventing caregiver burnout"--Amazon. Includes index. "Having witnessed the violent deaths of both her husband and father in one terrible day, Dara flees to the solitude of a secret house in a remote desert valley. But she's not alone, for a strange woman dances on the distant sands of the desert. Further, Dara's begun to hear a voice in the wind that whispers it loves her, and invites her to dance. Follow Dara as she learns the art of loving despite her fears, discovers the mother who abandoned her long ago, and surrenders at last to the rhythm of grace."--Amazon. "Ponciá Vicencio, the debut novel by Afro-Brazilian author Conceiçã̃o Evaristo, is the story of a young Afro-Brazilian woman's journey from the land of her enslaved ancestors to the emptiness of urban life. However, the generations of creativity, violence and family cannot be so easily left behind as Ponciá is heir to a mysterious psychic gift from her grandfather. Does this gift have the power to bring Ponciá back from the emotional vaccum and absolute solitude that has overtaken her in the city? Do the elemental forces of earth, air, fire and water mean anything in the barren urban landscape?"--Jacket. Dear caregiver --
