If you have ever had to take care of a loved one, you will know how hard it is, but also how self-rewarding it can be.
Before my own dad died, he needed care, and a home was not going to happen. That's where I came in as well as his girlfriend. She went and woke him up each morning and made sure he had breakfast and his medicine, then she went to work. I would go there in the late morning, visit, then make his lunch. Also making sure he took his insulin. Then I would engage him in more conversat

There is strength and endurance for seeing it through and also stories on saying goodbye at the ...more

Since my story was in here, I'd be pretty dumb not to give it 5 stars. I wrote a story about connecting with my mom as she was dying with lung cancer, but it was an uplifting story. She gave me my love of reading and I'll be forever grateful.

This is a must read for anyone who is a caregiver or thinks he/she may become one. I wish I had read this prior to caring for my Mom or even when I first began caring for her. Great suggestions of others to read for caregivers as well.
