Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers
Do you have a family member who requires constant care? You are not alone. This collection offers support and encouragement in its 101 stories for family caregivers of all ages, including the “sandwich” generation caring for a family member while raising their children. With stories by those on the receiving end of the care too. These stories of love, sacrifice, and lessons will inspire and uplift family members making sacrifices to make sure their loved ones are well cared for, whether in their own homes or elsewhere.
On a day to day basis, being a family caregiver can be rather tiring. It leaves you with little time for yourself and can sometimes cause resentments to build up.
However, its only when the person you are taking care of passes do you realize all those moments that you treasured. This book honors those moments during being the caregiver that can turn into treasured memories.
If you are still lucky enough to be a caregiver, then take the time to enjoy the moments now. I miss my mom and would give anything to have a few more years as her caregiver.
This book has stories from people that range from the reluctant caregiver all the way to the Susy Homemakers of the world. I know that there will be more then one story that will strike a chord with you and remind you of all those wonderful times.
