When you just dont feel like exercising, do you still manage to push yourself to do it?
Fairgoer2169
Keto diet might not work for me. I need sugar haha
Fairgoer1451
Pasta is my comfort food so i don't think keto diet is for me
Fairgoer1928
Smartphones are making us feel connected yet disconnected at the same time

One Caregiver’s Journey

If you are a caregiver or about to become a caregiver, One Caregiver’s Journey is a must read. This personal memoir will make you laugh or tug at your heart as the author shares her experiences about providing 24/7 care in her home to her mother for 9 1/2 years until her mother’s death at age 102. The book is an easy read, honestly written and provides suggestions and information that can be utilized by all caregivers. This book is based on personal experiences and not medical findings and candidly details the daily unexpected health or age-related challenges caregivers face. Because the book was written over a period of 9 1/2 years, the reader will experience first-hand the various stages, changes, challenges and complexities of being a full-time caregiver. The author shares insights, practical advice and experiences how her caregiving routine evolved over time as her mother aged. The book is a caregiving blueprint that empowers readers to realize that the challenges we face are not insurmountable. The book extends out six months after her mother’s death and proves there is life after caregiving. The author was able to recognize how special the time she spent caring for her mother was, how much she learned about herself, her strengths and how her life has been enriched.
