The rewards of family caregiving are many; the challenges, surprisingly impactful.
You need to read this book if:
—you feel that caregiving tasks previously done with ease now require extra motivation and energy to complete;
—the compassion you once had is waning, and you find yourself
cutting corners to complete caregiving tasks;
—you feel that you are approaching the end of your rope, and you are overwhelmed due to stress and exhaustion; and
—most importantly, if you are just beginning the work of caring for another human being.
It will not prevent the abovementioned scenarios from happening, but it will allow you to tolerate them and survive. Challenges are coming your way.
Help will be needed. The help starts here.
