When her brother had a stroke, Taffy Cannon was thrust into the realm of caregiving: the medical lingo, the legal paperwork, the spiritual exhaustion. Caregiving 101 offers practical guidance from the author's own experience: Who's who on the medical team? What are the long-term care options? What does it all really cost? How does the caregiver manage everything, including self-care? With compassion and practicality, Cannon reassures caregivers that they are not alone.
