Family Caregiver ESSENTIALS™

To be entrusted with the care of another human being can be one of the greatest honors bestowed on you. Caregiving takes on meaning which is beyond reproach. New parents have nine months to prepare for the responsibility of their newborn child. Doctors and nurses undergo years of rigorous training for the work they do. However, caregivers find themselves suddenly thrust into a role you did not choose or prepare for, when called on to care for a parent, partner, spouse, or loved one after a diagnosis or an accident. At a moment’s notice you become a caregiver, it’s that untimely diagnosis or that late night call to inform you of an unfortunate accident. And SUDDENLY…without any warning or time to think things through. You’re a caregiver.

Grace and Grit: Insights to Real-Life Challenges of Aging for Adult Children and Their Parents

The challenges of moving the elderly from one home to the next are frequently faced by both generations: seniors and their adult children. This book of compelling stories about this later-in-life event, often unexpected in its timing and scope, delivers points of view from the parents, adult children, and professional move managers. These real-life issues of communication, downsizing decisions pertaining to personal possessions, and sharing and sustaining memories convey the love, compassion, disappointment, and perseverance experienced by those coping through this difficult transitional time, reminding readers that they are not alone. The grace and grit exhibited in these true stories—from loved ones, friends, and other regular people—will bring solace through inspiration.

What’s the Deal with Caregiving?

Chris MacLellan, who has experienced the role of a caregiver, not once, but twice has written a long needed guidebook for caregivers that provides guidance, tips, resources, compassion and advice that is all based on his own experience and desire to help others who struggle with the role of being a caregiver. This book discusses Chris’ own recent experience which was widely documented through a Pulitzer Price nominated story from Florida entitled “In Sickness and in Health: A Couples Final Journey about his role as a caregiver for his dying partner. What Chris learned is now provided in this book to help the millions of caregivers of all ages, races, sexual orientations and family situations.
