For 12 years, Linda traveled the journey of a working caregiver. Calling upon her experiences, she has written a book to help family caregivers understand their role, and how to care for themselves while caring for another.

The demands upon adult children with aging parents can impact our physical, mental and emotional health almost to the breaking point. There are a lot of resources available for caregivers, but few as honest and from the heart as A Caregiver's Journey

This isn't a job we trained for, and at times we just need to be told it's okay to vent our frustrations – this book gives you permission. Linda has a unique ability to combine common sense and humor, while teaching us all valuable lessons on survival. For 12 years, Linda shared her home with her elderly mother. She brings hands-on, practical experience to the subject at hand.

Excerpt
A lot of us Baby Boomers are members of the "sandwich generation," a phrase used to describe those who are responsible in some way for both children and parents. We are trying to meet the needs of everyone close to us, and the results have not been too successful. We are torn between spending time with Dad in his assisted living apartment and going to our son's basketball game; between having a quiet meal with Mom or going to a movie with our spouse. Deciding which one to choose is difficult, and the results of the choice may be even more so. WE live in a constant of being overwhelmed, with hardly enough time to take a long hot relaxing bath, must less treat ourselves to a much needed massage or lunch with our friends.

Professional Reviews

from Mary Lou Donnelly
“Linda Thompson's style and wit makes a topic that none of us wants to deal with, easier to face. A Caregiver’s Journey is a book that every home should have as a resource for dealing with family members in a crisis. It provides step by step instructions to handle almost every eventuality. There is no cost to this book, it is an investment.” - Mary Lou Donnelly, Five Rings Financial

From the Writer's Digest 14th Annual Book Awards
“The quotes spread throughout the manuscript are great. They help set the tone for each chapter and give the reader something to think about and/or meditate upon. The author has clearly done a lot of research. All of the statistical information is informative and serves to strengthen her arguments. The extensive appendices are an added bonus. Some self-help genre books leave the reader to find such additional information on one’s own- to have it all at one’s fingertips is a much better idea. The author’s use of short paragraphs and bullet points makes the book easy to read and easy to refer back to at a later date. Best of all are the analogies the author uses to help the reader understand difficult or confusing concepts. Her sense of humor is also greatly appreciated when dealing with an otherwise somber subject.” - Judge’s commentary from the Writer’s Digest 14th Annual International Self-Published Book Awards
