About the Book
Taking a care journey through dementia has taught me that the most difficult part of caring for a loved one is doing everything that has to be done while feeling everything that you’re feeling.
OMG! I’m the Grown-Up! A Conversation on Giving-Care to a Loved One…and Yourself is a road map for managing the interpersonal ups and downs of caring for a loved one.
Introducing the Praxis for Care
My book introduces the Praxis for Care, a strategy that has 3 goals:
Help people caring for a loved one make decisions and take actions that are satisfying to both people
Do the best one can do within the circumstances at hand
Live life fully with no regrets.
This book engages care-givers in self-reflection exercises for creating a care relationship that meets the needs of both the care-giver and care recipient.
The Praxis for Care encourages care-givers to think about what they want from the care relationship then develop a plan to actualize it.
