In 2015 NCCF Trustee Will Long published his first book ‘A Gift for Carers’ The impact of this book was one of the key reasons that the NCCF recruited Will to the Trustee Board.

The book was written following Will’s personal struggle with the psychological and physical pressures of caring for his mum. His experiences and research led him to develop a solution which counters the devastating effects of what the medical world refers to as
“Caregiver Syndrome.”

Will identifies seven areas that make for a joyful life. This book is packed full of stories that will educate, inform and inspire the reader to create a better life and future. His engaging style will ensure that you definitely will not want to put this book down.

After reading this book you will enjoy:

  • Higher levels of self-esteem

  • A greater understanding of yourself and others
  • A powerful mind-set
  • A more optimistic outlook
  • The ability to handle change
  • The confidence just to be yourself
  • Greater focus and a sense of direction
  • A general feeling of contentment and wellbeing
The Contented Carer

“This is one of those must read books if you are having to care for someone and are looking for some support and advice. Having had to care for an elderly Mother-in-law and Sister-in-law I can assure you that the information the author shares is extremely helpful to anyone looking to get their life back and move on. Thank you William Long, well written.”
