CARING FOR ANOTHER
Hold the book in your hand and read the large print, relate to the friendly, lovingly told stories of a caregiver and her love.
You might have heard the caregiver's lament:
Our family and friends just don’t get it.
It’s not their fault, but, because they haven’t lived through it,
the challenges and demands of a caregiving life are
almost impossible for them to understand .
Maybe this story will connect you to your emotions and in some way to a caregiver who needs your help. Caregivers find comfort in knowing others understand.

I am honored to be among those who perform the
role of caregiver.
I must underscore the admiration I feel for caregivers. I am inspired by their resilience and perseverance, their courage and commitment. I am humbled to walk among them.
Many are silently worn out by caregiver challenges.
Get insight into the life of a caregiver. Recognize how exhausted and stressed they are. Accompany the author on her journey so you can discover how you can, what you can, when you can help.
Ask a caregiver how you can help with their stress and frustrations, their sadness and their heartaches.
I felt sadness and frustrations every day and finally I began to journal about My Love and our situation.
I became aware that I was not the only one who was unprepared and untrained to become a caregiver. I felt a need to inform others in the same situation what might be ahead.
And so... the need to write our story became the way I let others know they are not alone. I hope I have done that for at least one person.
Understanding a caregiver's life will be helpful:
1. to anyone in a support role,
2. to 'friendly visitors,'
3. to service workers, and
4. to family and friends.
