There are approximately seven million carers in the UK, and every day, another six thousand people take on a caring responsibility. In the USA, there are more than 44 million carers. Carers can be responsible for a whole range of tasks from visiting, shopping, cooking and collecting prescriptions, to heavy physical work such as bathing, dressing and lifting the person in need of care. Being a carer can be a difficult and complex experience, giving rise to many emotional, financial and practical hardships. Many carers soldier on, not really aware of how much help is available. And, while resources do exist to help carers, accessing these can prove difficult. The aim of this book is to provide a good general practical guide to caring, including what it involves, the issues affecting carers and sources of help. The personal experiences of carers is an integral part of the book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Sidonie. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/summ/000229/bk_summ_000229_sample.mp3.

Dogs can be your best friends. They love you when you are happy or sad, or when you are angry or frustrated. They just want your love and attention. That´s all they ask - well, and a bone from time to time. Owning a dog is a huge commitment, or at least that´s what we tell our children. Dogs have to be fed, walked, bathed, played with, and also taken to the veterinarian. They require a lot of attention, but for every minute you spend with them you are rewarded by their love and affections 10 times over. Dogs can be your best friends because they tune into your emotions. There are many ways to take good care of your dogs. These pets have their own specific needs that you should attend to. It is best if you talk first with a veterinarian or an animal doctor before you own a dog. In this book you will find a few care tips you need to remember. Having a dog is a natural thing for humans. I encourage everyone to have a four-legged hairy friend because I believe they complete us. However, having a dog is going to change your life completely! First of all, the most important thing is to learn to live next to each other so as to foster a happy relationship. I have seen many dog owners who feel miserable because of treating their dogs too well. Their dogs are usually bold and beautiful, spending most of their life on a couch and demanding more and more attention, but it´s never enough. Was that the life you were dreaming of having with your new dog? Are you now happy? I have also seen many dogs that live miserable lives because they are not allowed to do anything in their nature. They are not allowed to run, not allowed to bark, and definitely not allowed to decide anything for themselves. Does that sound good for you? Does your best friend who would give you his life really deserve such treatment? Are you sure that after this kind of treatment your dog would jeopardize his life for you? For me, it always seems like a bad marriage where one side tries to ple 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Beretta. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/052183/bk_acx0_052183_sample.mp3.

Can you guess what the largest organ of your body is? Nope, not your liver, which is the biggest internal organ, but not the largest of them all. Give up? It´s your skin! Yes, that´s right. It´s an excretory organ, on its own responsible for waste such as urea and sodium to leave your body through its sweat pores. Just when you thought the skin was all about appearance. That´s certainly true, but it goes much more skin deep than that. Your skin is your body´s vital first line of defense. It protects you from all the tiny microscopic organisms in the air, and toxin and other pollution within the environment. Now on to the obvious of more or less why you want to take care of your skin: you want to appear and be attractive, increase your self-esteem and confidence, or get ahead professionally in life, as people tend to favor better-looking people than those who are less polished in appearance. Overall, you just want to have healthy, beautiful skin because your skin is also an indicator of your health. They say real beauty comes from the inside out - well, the outside is the reflection of your inside. If your internal health is bad, that will show outwardly through your skin, and vice versa. Now that you know how your skin is much more than about looking good - and even why skin care is necessary - it´s time to actually start taking care of your skin! 1. Language: English.
