|November is National Family Caregivers Month. This is the perfect time to celebrate the contribution of those volunteer friends and family members who support a loved one with their health or managing a disability. We’re thankful for the contributions of the more than 44 million Americans who care for a family member, friend, or neighbor. Join us as we salute and celebrate all caregivers with my official launch of “An Unlikely Gift: Finding Inspiration Caring for My Father with Dementia.” My book is now available in paperback and as an e-book on Amazon.com. https://amzn.to/2Rvw2mH.
I wrote “An Unlikely Gift” to let the world know more about my father. We were always close and I wanted his legacy to live on. I did that and I am very proud of that. Along the way, I also realized that I wanted to help caregivers who are on a similar journey as mine. I wanted to provide guidance and inspiration to them and help them embrace the road they are on. I sincerely hope this book is successful in that way.
Read my book to learn how you can make today great. Come learn with others how to survive this journey, and even thrive. Books signings and events continue to be planned but one I have on my calendar now is with OASIS Rochester this Friday, November 9 at 1:30pm. I’m calling this a Caregiver Conversation where we’ll be discussing mindset and care-giving strategies in an effort to make this road a little bit easier. This will be held at Lifetime Care at 3111 Winton Rd. South in Rochester. This is a free event with a book signing immediately following. Books will be available for sale at a discount.
Please visit https://www.oasisnet.org/Rochester-NY/Classes (class #533) for more information. Registration for this event is FREE. Signing up with Oasis Rochester is FREE. You have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain.
Take a moment and thank a caregiver in your life. Thank them for being the gift that they are.
