Overview


Approximately 49% of the U.S. adult population currently shoulders or soon will shoulder elder care responsibilities. For the past seven years Shelly Beach and her husband have been caregivers for their parents. At present, they have two parents living with them. What are the challenges of this kind of day-to-day caregiving, which many children are facing today as their parents age and deal with illness, Alzheimer's, and death? With her fresh and compelling style, Shelly offers devotionals/meditations based on her own life and daily experiences, providing understanding, insights, inspiration, and, yes, even laughter for anyone who is in the midst of these often difficult circumstances.

I purchased this book a few years ago as I started the caregiving journey. Shelly Beach is very relatable as she shares her struggles, heartbreaks, and frustration as she weaves the love she has for her parents and father in law, her husband, and her children into the journey of caregiving. I recently purchased this book for a friend who has embarked on caregiving for her mother and father. My friend tells me it has helped her as she sorts through the love, the guilt, and being so tired she can hardly move. I have also recommended this book to those in my caregiver support group.
