The Caregiver’s Secrets is not a testimonial.
It is a reflective account of Willetha's 20+ year experience as a caregiver for an aging parent. The book emphasizes both the enormous scope of the demographic challenge facing America and the poignant details of coping with day-to-day caregiving responsibilities.
The book aims to “open up” the experience of caregiving. The narrative touches on many key challenges and dilemmas facing families and their aging loved ones, including difficult discussions about end of life decisions and the changing nature of the health care delivery system.
The Caregiver’s Secrets includes tips and helpful advice for practicing caregivers as well as those who are destined to become caregivers whether they know it or not. It attempts to span the general and the particular, connecting the dots within a complex and hidden, but increasingly important sector of American life.
