Item Description...
"Call me if you need anything..." Most of us have said this to someone with a chronic illness because we didn't know what else to say. We care, but how do we show it? Does a casserole really encourage someone? Why don't people ever call and tell us what they really need? If you've ever wanted to help but didn't know how, this book provides 505 ways to encourage someone who is hurting, including what to say, not say, what to write in a card, and how to reach out to the entire family. Beyond Casseroles provides refreshingly creative and approachable outreach ideas that to beyond lasagna while also giving a friend the ability to feel independent, respected, and hopeful.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful ideas...  Dec 22, 2007
to help a friend with a chronic, painful illness. So many times people say "let me know if you need anything" and they mean well, and while flowers or a card is nice, this book includes very useful ideas that really do make a difference in the life of a chronically ill person.
Suggestions such as "changing her sheets" or "mop the kitchen floor", while small things, really add to the comfort of someone suffering with arthritis or other painful illnesses. This book even includes ideas of what not to say to someone who is ill. All in all, a gem of a book. Wish I had found it sooner.
 
Handy Practical Help  Apr 23, 2006
As the author of "Don't You Need Some Rest? 52 Sabbath Reflections for Stressful Living", I was immediately drawn to Lisa Copen's book. Her practical suggestions for helping a chronically ill friend can be implemented immediately. She presents and easy guide for what to do and not do; as well as what to say and not to say. I'm glad she and her "Rest Ministries" have moved me beyond casseroles.
 
505 little nudging reminders.  Apr 22, 2006
I am re-ordering, yet again, more copies of Beyond Casseroles 505 Ways to Help Someone with Chronic Illness/Pain. I love these little books and find they are just perfect to give along with a card to someone who deals with chronic pain and illness or to someone who is a friend or relative of someone especially caregivers. I usually tell the person with the chronic illness to tick off the ones that they would find most useful and leave it around when visitors come to call.
I try to keep several on hand to give away as needed. I've had lots of positive feedback. As someone recently told me, "It's just common sense, but sometimes it's hard to think of these ideas without a little nudging reminder."
