What people are saying about No Regrets

I strongly recommend No Regrets for anyone who is a caregiver or who desires to support caregivers. This book shares heartwarming caregiver experiences and practical steps at the same time. I love the easy to read layout of the book. I’m a caregiver and I understand what it takes to care for a parent at home. If I had access to this book at the beginning of my journey, it would have saved me time, money and heartache. This is a must-have book because there is a high likelihood that most of us will either need a caregiver or be a caregiver before our life journey ends.

Every page of Rayna Neises’ book is filled with wisdom, compassion and profound insights. Reading it is like walking alongside your best friend, only this best friend has embarked on the journey before, and is now along to support, instruct, encourage and motivate you. Her intentional approach to caregiving will broaden and deepen your own experience, enabling you to also discover the joy and satisfaction in caring for another. In No Regrets, Rayna shares the beautiful heartfelt story of caring for her parents, and her passion to assist other caregivers.

I have never thought I could take care of my mom, if she should need me to, before she dies. But after reading Rayna’s book, she inspired me to at least try so I would have no regrets when my mom is gone. Besides all the tips she gives on caretaking a loved one, the second part of the book is full of ideas for caring for ourselves too. Be sure to grab a tissue as you read about the trials and struggles Rayna went through in caring for her Dad, you might need it.

The deep reality is one day your parents will likely need caring for.

As you age so do your loved ones. Caring for an elderly parent or ailing loved one is not an easy task, but it can be one of the most fulfilling things a person will ever do. No Regrets: Hope for Your Caregiving Season shares Rayna Neises personal heart-warming stories and practical suggestions for journeying through one’s caregiving season.

 

In No Regrets caregivers learn how to:

  • Navigate the toughest decisions about caring for their loved one
  • Take care of their loved ones needs and not neglect their own in the process
  • Find joy in caring for their aging parent or ailing loved one
  • Go through this season of caring with no regrets

 

The healthy integration of caring for an aging loved one requires being able to walk them all the way to the end of their life while still having a life to walk back into. No Regrets helps caregivers to consider how being intentional in their season of caring allows them to care for their loved ones well while at the same time not losing themselves.

 

There is finality that’s coming as you walk with them to the end, but there doesn’t have to be hopelessness in it all. Everyone ages, and you will reach the end of your life someday, and that’s okay.

 

There can be joy, hope, and love in the midst of this journey.

What people are saying about No Regrets

The perfect blend of insight, understanding and practical guidance, Rayna Neises brings hope and wisdom to anyone caring for a parent. “No Regrets” is so incredibly valuable because it focuses on what matters most to every caregiver…the ability to look back on the journey you’ve walked as a caregiver to your parent and being able to say you have no regrets. Yes, there will be heartaches. By reading this book and learning from its rich stories, you will begin to exchange your heartaches for hope and memories to forever cherish.

As Rayna’s pastor I had a front row seat to the story that inspired this book. I watched with both admiration and helplessness. I admired her determined care for her father. Yet I felt helpless to provide guidance in this situation that went beyond my own experience and knowledge. I remember wishing I had a resource to assist her and me. Now I have that resource in her book “No Regrets: Hope for Your Caregiving Season.”

“No Regrets: Hope for Your Caregiving Season” is the book I’ve needed for many years, and a resource I will share widely with people under my care. Rayna combines her own experience, the wisdom of others, and the message of Jesus Christ to tell the weary caregiver, “There is always hope.” That’s the message I want to put in the hands of those I counsel.

Rayna writes early on, “Caring is not a one-size-fits-all situation.” What follows is not a step-by-step plan. Rather, Rayna addresses the many worlds that comprise the caregiver’s universe and provides wisdom that empowers action. This is a book that cares for caregivers and will be an invaluable tool for my pastoral ministry.

Rayna’s ability to share in words her journey of caregiving is like hearing the stories in person as they were occurring. You feel the emotion, the heartache and indescribable and unconditional love she has the capacity to give as a daughter, a sister, a wife and caregiver.

Rayna Neises delivers on her promise to provide Hope for Your Caregiving Season in her book, No Regrets. Told from a powerful first-person perspective, readers will happily (even gratefully) discover hope, encouragement, as well as a treasure trove of practical suggestions for journeying through the caregiving season. Neises knows from firsthand experience both the triumphs and the tragedies of giving care to loved ones and she passes on her wisdom and knowledge in a winsome, uplifting way. Highly recommended.

Michele Howe

Michele is the author of 25 books for women and families. Her newest release is Giving Thanks for a Perfectly Imperfect Life.

In this personal journey as a caregiver, Rayna shares her reliance on deep and abiding faith through all of the emotions she experienced, the ability to embrace the good moments and balance the tough ones, and the impact of caregiving a family member on her other relationships. Of great value to the reader, she shares what she learned and how others might process their own unique experiences through the lens of her wisdom. The takeaway we can gain from Rayna is knowing when to trust herself, when to trust the family collective and when to trust outside expert sources.
