Description

"Just When U Think U Know What You're Talking About . . . Along Comes Grandpa" is one of the first books to address caregiver needs and issues in one concise story. It is the story of a relationship between two very different generations, separated by almost sixty years, which at times is funny, heartfelt, sad, and moving. At all times, it is honest-sometimes painfully honest. It is about how difficult it is to be the caregiver, the family member, the cheerleader, the doctor, the nurse, and the care coordinator. We are all those things and more when we assume the role of caregiver for a loved one. Unfortunately, the relationship changes and we no longer get to be the granddaughter, wife, mother, father, or husband when we assume the caregiver role. Sue Salach's endearing story makes the reader feel that it is OK to laugh, be angry, or feel guilty, to be frustrated, tired, sad, hopeless, and to feel all of these things at the same time, or go through the stages a little at a time. However, the most important message from this story is that we all get through it and we need to forgive ourselves for the mistakes we made along the journey.show more
