Review quote

'This book is written in a clear and concise style. As the title suggests, the book is for carers who are working at home and who may have no professional training in nursing. I liked especially the chapter on plant remedies which uses plain language understandable to the ordinary reader. Many useful hints are given throughout the book.' -- William Milne, New View, Spring 2006show more
