Coming of Age with Aging Parents
The Bungles, Battles, and Blessings
By Gail Goeller
A compassionate and humorous guide for finding perspective and healing during eldercare.
Caring for an aging parent can be a journey of a thousand miles, each one sparking a breakthrough in personal growth and understanding. Coming of Age with Aging Parents charts these milestones through real-life stories, portraying everything from dealing with late-night phone calls and parental self-diagnosis to managing angry outbursts, emergencies of all sorts, caregiver burnout, and end-of-life requests. Probing questions following each story help reframe events so the reader can emerge with not only fresh insights into caregiving but increased purpose, power, and happiness.
