By giving a compassionate, honest and heartfelt account of her own experiences, Terri echoes the silent frustration, challenges and calm wisdom of caregivers all over the world. Valuable for the caregiver—and for those who come in contact with them daily—this book also gives practical survival tips and insight for everyone in the human community.
Terri Robinson, teacher and writer, was abruptly faced with the tough demands of caregiving. Her husband’s sudden stroke while her children were young changed their lives as a family forever. Realizing that her caretaking had even deeper roots and a wider reach starting with the death of her own father, she shares these insights with her new book, Riding the Care-Go-Round: A Caregiver’s Journey.
Through her engaging and practical storytelling, Terri shares the trials and innermost feelings of a caregiver. She shares answers to these kinds of deep, hard questions:
How do you take car keys away from your own mother when it’s no longer safe for her to drive?
How do you face the loss of love and romance when disability strikes your spouse and you must abruptly take on the role of caregiver?
How do you recharge your own batteries and pursue your own dreams and goals, in the midst of your overwhelming responsibility as a caregiver?
