Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers
We were all probably taught to “respect our elders”, but I think we should do more than that. We should cherish them, listen to them, and go out of our way to help them. It breaks my heart when I hear reports about elder abuse or people being unkind to the elderly. It's right up there with child abuse and animal abuse if you ask me. However, dropping everything in order to be a full-time caregiver is a lot easier said than done.
Most people these days are already juggling families, a job (or jobs) and a hectic schedule. When and if it comes time to care for a loved one, it will most likely require great sacrifice. Not everyone can do it, but if you can and do, you will most likely need support. In Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers, you will find 101 stories from people of all ages who have made the choice to become a caregiver. They will provide emotional support and practical advice in order to inspire you and make you feel appreciated.
If you or someone you know is a family caregiver, I would highly suggest this book. Reading these personal glimpses into other caregivers' lives is truly inspiring!
