    Validating & Clarifying for caregivers

    I finally felt a friend & not crazy & alone, as I figure my way of caring for my elderly mom. The present trend seems to be a norm to 'place our parents' in assisted living or nursing home. People give a look of pity or 'you are nuts' look. The book was so affirming to my heart, mind & soul. The writings are true to heart & soul, as well as touching on practical aspects of caregiving. THANK YOU!
