The "Boom" of Caregiving

I attended and exhibited at a recent “Florida Boomer Lifestyles” conference, geared towards businesses serving (or wanting to) serve Baby Boomers. Author Gail Sheehy did a great presentation about her personal experience caring for her ill husband, and the “predictable crisis of midlife” that is caregiving. See a recent article on Gail and her upcoming book on caregiving: http://www.tampabay.com/news/aging/lifetimes/article1003921.ece. Gail, the author of the widely read Passages will I am sure do a great job covering this important topic and key “passage” of midlife.

My other favorite book on this topic is Mothering Mother by Carol O’Dell. I especially like it because there are many “educational” caregiving books, but so few that tell the stories. Her book is told in a conversational tone with humor and personality. You will definitely laugh out loud and that is the medicine most caregivers could really use. She has great insights too for those of us who work with family caregivers, reminding us of what a caregiver may be feeling and going through and how to make it easier, not more difficult.
