My second book, FINAL YEARS STORIES OF Parent Care, Loss and Lives Changed is now available on Kindle and Nook. I share this with you in case you are in the shoes of being a caregiver for your parents or know someone else in the caregiver’s shoes. Here is the description:
“Helping our parents’ transition through aging, decline and death changes many adult children's lives forever. It shakes their very foundation. Caregivers often feel lost and alone and don't know where to turn for support in a culture where sharing feelings about the decline of a loved one, emotional pain and loss may not be well-received. Many tears are cried while making difficult choices with and for loved ones.
In this book ten people share their stories of tough roads of decision-making, family dynamics, grief, and moving on. The author weaves her own account through each of their chapters. While reading these stories in the caregivers’ voice, readers will know they are not alone but part of a "hidden tribe" who share a common bond. They will find guidance for navigating their way through their parents' final years as they find themselves in the stories of others in this book.
This book is for anyone caring for aging parents, for anyone grappling with sibling conflict during this difficult time, for anyone who has lost a parent, and for those with unresolved guilt or regret around their parent's decline and death. It is also for parent elders who wish to look through the eyes of children as the adult caregivers.”
FINAL YEARS Stories of Parent Care, Loss and Lives Changed is currently available on Amazon Kindle, and on Barnes and Noble Nook. I hope you will share this with friends you care about who are dealing with caring for aging or declining parents, or their loss. It will soon be having its' own separate blog.
