    ┬┐Mind our Elders┬┐ is an EXCELLENT resource!

    Anyone in the process of providing the most appropriate and loving caregiving for their beloved elderly knows just how rewarding the experience is. There are miraculous moments of shared tenderness and indescribable opportunities of healing. And yet there is another side to caregiving ¿ it is often an emotionally exhausting and physically demanding journey. Caring for someone¿s declining health and wellbeing can feel like being in the middle of an out of control emotional whirlwind. Feelings of uncertainty, guilt, resentment, stress, burnout, and overwhelm are normal occurrences. If you are a caregiver of your elderly parents, this book offers inspiration for all those times you feel overwhelmed with the issues of taking care of elderly parents. ¿Minding our Elders¿ is a collection of heart-warming stories written by author Bursack and caregivers who share their authentically honest and exquisitely human experiences. It is practical and overflowing with empathetic truth from those who have gone through the experience themselves. The stories contained in this transformative book provide a ¿portable support group,¿ allowing the reader to feel understood, comforted, and less alone. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is caring for an aging person. Is a great resource to help you care for your elderly without losing yourself. If you feel like you are alone and dealing with unique issues concerning your parents, please pick up a copy of this book. It will give you an invaluable resource of support and understanding to comfort you through the toughest of times. Dr. Annette Colby: Author of ¿Your Highest Potential¿

    Caregiver Voices Are Heard

    Using an easy narrative style, author Carol Bradley Bursack provides readers with poignant stories of caregivers in the act of caregiving. As a backdrop to her detailed stories, Carol has been a caregiver herself for many years for a multitude of family members. In addition to her experiences in varied caregiving situations, Carol is an accomplished writer and columnist for The Forum Newspaper in North Dakota. Her stories have beautiful prose and colorful details that will make readers really feel like they have attended a caregivers support group. I highly recommend this book!

    Powerful and Inspiring

    I actually started reading your book from the very beginning, instead of from back to front. I could count on one hand how many books have enticed me to do that! God inspired every word you wrote, Carol. Your imagery ¿ wow ¿ it¿s beyond compare! Barbara Carlisle Barnesville, MN

    Been There-Done That!

    As the frazzled son of an aging mother with dementia, I found validation and comfort in Carol Bradley Bursack¿s exceptional book, ¿Minding Our Elders.¿ Eldercare is often a lonely business and one that places a profound mental and physical burden on the caregiver. Healing begins with the discovery that one is not alone. ¿Minding Our Elders¿ provides ample evidence that eldercaregivers have plenty of company these days. Bursack uses a professional journalist¿s interview technique to compile the trials and challenges of over twenty-five caregivers who have poured out their hearts to her. There is a relaxed intimacy to her writing style that immediately engages the reader. It feels as though each of her subjects has become your own personal friend who is quietly sharing with you the private pain associated with care of their loved one. Bursack introduces each person with a description of surroundings, clothing, gestures and expression that reveals a sharp eye for detail¿the kind of detail that imbues the people and their stories with humanity. Her faithful and insightful reporting of these stories, told in each caregiver¿s own words, has created a sensitive and well written book that is must reading for anyone facing the decline of a parent. I recommend it highly. Bob Tell¿ Author, DEMENTIA DIARY, A Caregiver's Journal (A memoir about caregiving)
