Overview

“Suffering is a complex phenomenon. So is the experience of caring for people who are suffering, especially if they are loved ones. It is essential to have resources that allow us to better cope with such events and processes. This book is a great contribution in this line.”—Dr. Luis Cruz-Villalobos, author, clinical psychologist, PhD (VU Amsterdam) 

Nobody is ever ready. 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, from the formation of a support team to the options for long-term care. Though caregiving decisions can be difficult, Cannon reassures caregivers that they are not alone. Taffy Cannon is also the author of 14 mystery novels.
