During my many years as my mother's primary caregiver, I encountered so many shocking "lessons learned" that I was amazed no one had written a book about them.
So I wrote it.
"Losing Marmee" is not just another how-to about medical and legal issues; it's a "memoir with a purpose" -- to give you a heads-up about the day-to-day surprises that may come your way, and the toll they may take on your own life.
Do you know what may happen if you don't get the car keys away from Dad? (See chapter 1.)
Did you know there's more than one way to exit hospice?
Can you identify the symptoms of a T.I.A. (mini-stroke)?
Would you recognize signs of elder abuse?
Are you ready for the long-term reality of caring for someone, even if they're in the best available facility?
"Losing Marmee" will help you prepare for reality and realize you are not alone with the many decisions you will make. Along the way, you'll get glimpses of my mom's indomitable spirit ("Once a Marine, always a Marine") and sense of humor.
Please check out the 5-star reviews on Amazon. Available in paperback and Kindle e-book formats.
All proceeds from sales of "Losing Marmee" to go appropriate nonprofit organizations, including Friends of the Library (locally) and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
