Summary
"Here, readers will gain a better understanding of their own lives and know they are not alone in the emotional struggles of caring for an aging patent. Distress can become peace of mind. Relationships that might be weakened by a caretaker rule - between caretakers and their children, spouses, and friends - can actually grow stronger with the experience."--Jacket
