Back cover copy

No one really expects it, but at some time or another, just about everyone has been--or will be--responsible for giving care for a sustained period to someone close to them. Gail Sheehy, who has chronicled every major turning point for modern Americans, knows firsthand the trials, fears, and rare joys of caregiving. Now she takes you by the hand and shows you that you will get through this--and you will do the right things.

With empathy and intelligence, backed by formidable research, and interspersed with poignant stories of her experience and that of other successful caregivers, Passages in Caregiving examines the arc of caregiving from the very first signs of trouble--providing invaluable advice and guidance to help turn a stressful, life-altering situation into a journey that can be safely navigated and from which everyone can benefit.
