This personal memoir will make you laugh or tug at your heart as the author shares her experiences about providing 24/7 care in her home to her mother for 9 1/2 years until her mother's death at age 102. The book is an easy read, honestly written and provides suggestions and information that can be utilized by all caregivers. This book is based on personal experiences and not medical findings and candidly details the daily unexpected health or age-related challenges caregivers face. Because the book was written over a period of 9 1/2 years, the reader will experience first-hand the various stages, changes, challenges and complexities of being a full-time caregiver. The author shares insights, practical advice and experiences how her caregiving routine evolved over time as her mother aged. The book is a caregiving blueprint that empowers readers to realize that the challenges we face are not insurmountable. The book extends out six months after her mother's death and proves there is life after caregiving.
