Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers...R&G!

I have long been a fan of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Their uplifting and heartfelt stories are wonderful ways to help anyone through a challenging time or to bring a laugh or smile when one was needed.  There is a new installment available now...Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Family Caregivers.  Here is the scoop...

101 Stories of Love, Sacrifice and Bonding

Do you have a family member who requires constant care? You are not alone. This collection offers support and encouragement in its 101 stories for family caregivers of all ages, including the "sandwich" generation caring for a family member while raising their children. With stories by those on the receiving end of the care too. These stories of love, sacrifice, and lessons will inspire and uplift family members making sacrifices to make sure their loved ones are well cared for, whether in their own homes or elsewhere.

Phew....this one is touching and moving and, in parts, a real tearjerker.  The book is broken up into 8 sections covering topics such as acceptance, finding joy and saying goodbye.  Each story is a true testament to the love and respect shared between caregivers and their loved ones.  This part of life can be very challenging but it can also be filled with so many blessings.  Reading Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Family Caregivers lets you know that you are not alone in the journey and reminds you of the great rewards to be had by sharing your life with you loved one.  A beautiful book and a thoughtful gift for anyone you know who is traveling this road.  Pick up your copy today on Amazon....


I am so pleased to tell you that the folks at Chicken Soup for the Soul are giving THREE lucky RBM readers a copy of Family Caregivers.  Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter... a Rafflecopter giveaway

My Mom has Alzheimers and I help take care of her. My advice is to ask for help if you need a break.

I took care of my mom last year when she was recovering from surgery. Seeing her daily improvement was incentive for me --- plus we got to spend more time together than we have since I was young.

I'm currently caring for an elderly family member and the thing that helps me is just remembering to take it day by day and try to enjoy the good moments that are there.

I took care of my mother-in-law while she was on Hospice. My advice is to talk to your loved one, even if you don't think they cab hear. You don't know for sure if they can hear you and you won't regret it when they're gone.

I have a 3 year old and I also care for my mother who now lives with me. Being part of the sandwich generation is not the easiest of things, you just have to take it one day at a time.

I haven't had the chance to care for my family but I am a state test nurses aide so I take care of people at the hospital. It can be very demanding. Always set aside some time for yourself. that would be my advise
