The book features the poems, essays and artwork of family caregivers who turn love into a coping strategy. These family caregivers write of their love, remembering how they fell in love years before caregiving arrived and reflecting on how they stay in love long after caregiving stays.
Our book features love from all perspectives—between siblings, parents and children, spouses. A granddaughter becomes the memory keeper for a grandmother she loves dearly. A grandmother finds a hero in a little boy who she treasures.
“When hubby had his accident it never dawned on me to love him less,” Laura George writes. Which reminds me us that life’s tough times will test our love. When tested, we can remember we choose how to use our love. In a time that seems to test our limits, we can love without limits.
Our book about love is also a way for us to help. We’ll use the revenue from our book sales to fund our CareGifters program. As often as we can, we send $500 to help a family caregiver in need. Because, when you look for love during caregiving, we want to help you find it and keep it.
