A deeply serious digest of psychological wisdom on recognizing and accepting the common emotions felt by caregivers - the roller-coaster of fear, guilt, anger, and mourning; the stages of grief, and the ways to reach some kind of acceptance. Hope and support through care partner support groups follows, as a necessary and healthy avenue for respite, contact with others, and growth.
The final chapter may even be the most helpful of all: a set of detailed and concrete principles for mitigating stresses on the family caregiver - their self-care, and the support of others, matters!
