Chicken Soup For The Soul: Family Caregivers

Chicken Soup For The Soul: Family Caregivers by Joan Lunden and Amy Newmark

About The Book:
Do you have a family member who requires constant care? You are not alone. This collection offers support and encouragement in its 101 stories for family caregivers of all ages, including the “sandwich” generation caring for a family member while raising their children. With stories by those on the receiving end of the care too. These stories of love, sacrifice, and lessons will inspire and uplift family members making sacrifices to make sure their loved ones are well cared for, whether in their own homes or elsewhere.

My Thoughts:
I am not a caregiver - well except to my child, but I can relate to so many of these stories, because they are about love, and family, and the special connection that one human being can have with the other. I've always loved Chicken Soup For The Soul books, and this one is no exception. I love the quotes with every story, and love that each story is different, and personal, and real! This is a good read for anyone giving care to another, or anyone receiving care.

About The Authors:
Joan Lunden is a well-known TV personality and author, and hosted a four-part series on Retirement Living TV focused on family caregiving. Amy Newmark is Chicken Soup for the Soul's publisher and editor-in-chief, after a 30-year career as a writer, speaker, financial analyst, and business executive in the worlds of finance and telecommunications.
