What began as an effort to manage stress through journaling, The Caregiver's Journey chronicles five years the authors spent caring for a loved one who lived hundreds of miles away. Realizing their hard-earned lessons could help smooth the path of those in similar situations, The Caregiver's Journey serves as a roadmap for anyone navigating the role of caregiver. The chronological narrative, interspersed with tips and recommendations, helps readers better understand their path as caregivers, while its 11 Tables and six Appendices expand upon critical topics.
