About the Book

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.  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. 


My book introduces the Praxis for Care, a strategy for navigating the interpersonal ups and downs of caring for a loved one. The Praxis for Care has three goals: 1) help people caring for a loved one make decisions and take actions that are satisfying to both people; 2) do the best one can do within the circumstances at hand; and most importantly 3) 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.  By focusing their attention on controlling the controllable, their own actions, the Praxis for Care enables care-givers to move their past out of the way in order to address the needs of the moment so that they can move forward on their care journey.
