I know that I am not quite there yet with having to be a caregiver to family members (other than my own children of course) but this book has some great tips for dealing with that stage of life. Mental illness, accidental disability or just plain old age, this book has situations and advice for everyone.
I especially liked the introduction of the book written by Joan Lunden. She gives insight into what it was like for her to all of a sudden have to care for her brother and mother. She talks about how she set everything up so that they were together and well cared for, however, she mentions that she never looked into the future and planned for the “next step”. I appreciated her advice, and even though I am a planner by nature, I will definitely be implementing the suggestions she gave.
