By Jody Gastfriend 

When it comes time to provide care for those who once cared for us, where can we turn? This book offers practical guidance for a broad range of caregiving situations when family caregivers assume their new role.

  • Uses the latest research and draws on case histories and interviews.
  • Is a resource as well as a source of inspiration, with a blend of powerful stories and practical advice.
  • Helps caregivers cope with numerous challenges, including parents who need but refuse help; siblings who don’t get along; the complexity of healthcare systems; financial issues; juggling work and caregiving; the use of technology; the power of connecting with a loved one who has dementia; and realizing the benefits amid the burdens of caregiving.
