From Library Journal:

How do you help someone who is sick? What do you say to a friend who has lost a parent? Finding ways to assist the sick, the bereaved, and those caring for the ill or disabled can be difficult. Sharon Langshur and Eric Langshur, a pediatrician and a health-care services provider, respectively, had a son born with congenital heart disease. To keep family and friends informed about his condition, they created a "care page" web site and found that the messages received in response provided much-needed support. That homegrown endeavor gave rise to the million-plus-member for patients, families, and health-care providers. This book presents stories of people who have used the service, which furnishes examples of providing care and support in a variety of contexts. There are also lists of tips for helping both patients and caregivers. Calling, emailing, bringing food, and having family meetings to plan care are among the actions suggested. This information is readily available in other sources, but the firsthand accounts offer a unique human dimension that will make readers realize they are not alone. Recommended for public and consumer health collections.-Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
