Patricia is excited to announce the publication of a first-of-its-kind handbook (written with Barbara Sweeney) which informs friends and families of caregivers how to keep their lives on track... their finances in order... their health from slipping and their spirits up while caring for another.

REVIEWS


This brief, no-nonsense book is a valuable resource for caregivers struggling with caring for another yet fearing relinquishing control or asking for help. It spells out in an honest, forthright way the ways that friends and family can provide assistance in small, yet very meaningful ways to take some of the burden off the caregiver. As a professional caregiver who also has been thrust now that the healthiest way to care for another is to care for myself first. But it is so hard to practice what I preach...this book gives friends and family who are watching a caregiver struggle real, practical suggestions for how to help without being intrusive or overbearing. Thank you Patricia and Barbara!!!
