Remarkable Caregiving gives readers a boost of hope for humanity.
Remarkable Caregiving is a compilation of six true stories as told to the author, Nancy R Poland. Within, readers meet a law-abiding woman forced to kidnap a loved one, a man who served as the “relief pitcher” for his best friend, and parents of children born with disabilities who found innovate solutions. They also meet a black woman born into poverty, who made a life for herself and her children, only to be thrust into crisis care for her mother just as her kids were grown. Learn how a daughter put her beliefs into action by caring for her dad, whatever the cost. And, finally, meet the woman who found her purpose in life becoming not just a paid caregiver, but a full-time, live-in family member to two adults with Down syndrome.
What made these caregivers resilient, inventive, and resourceful? What did they learn, and what can they teach others? These individual’s stories tell how they incorporated values of family, friendship, faith, and love while caring for another.
