Overview

A staggering 42 million Americans—one in four adults—face the challenges of caring for an adult friend or relative. Although caregiving can be a richly rewarding and joyful experience, the role comes with enormous responsibilities—and pressures. AARP’s gentle guide provides practical resources and tips that are easy to find when you need them, whether you’re caregiving day to day, planning for future needs, or in the middle of a crisis. Equally important, this book helps you care for the caregiver—you—before, during, and after caregiving. Author Amy Goyer, an expert in aging and families, offers insight, inspiration, and poignant stories and experiences of caregivers, including her own as a live-in caregiver for her parents.
