When the Man You Love Is Ill

Doing Your Best for Your Partner without Losing Yourself


This break-through book is an emotional survival guide with a pragmatic approach, providing timely advice that is candid, compassionate and holistic. The book focuses on the caregiver’s dilemma, how to best care for your partner while also taking care of yourself. Care giving is a challenge, but not one without rewards. For the first time in history, census statistics show that over half of the US population will be over fifty years old. The good news is that we live longer, and the diseases that used to kill, don’t anymore. The truth is that most of us will eventually either need, or be, caregivers.
