Synopsis

Statistics show that almost everyone will become a caregiver at least once in life. Though an estimated 35 million currently provide care for someone terminally or chronically ill, those who accept this responsibility often feel as if theyre alone in a frightening foreign land. Whether visiting occasionally or caregiving 24/7, they are brushing up against lifes sharpest point. As only one who has been there can, author Stan Goldberg offers an honest, caring, and comprehensive guide to those on this journey. Everyone wants to do the right thing, and this book provides the often-illusive how-to; from bedside etiquette and practical decisions to initiating difficult conversations, navigating rapid changes, caring for oneself in the midst of caring for another, and even offering permission to die. Because death is a process, not an event, Goldberg also addresses the caregivers recovery, including the recovery of joy.
