The CDC reports that there are over 34 million unpaid caregivers who provide care to someone age 18 and older who is ill or has a disability and that an estimated 21% of households in the United States are impacted by caregiving responsibilities. So with so many people struggling with caregiving responsibilities, why do caregivers feel alone and on their own? Chris MacLellan, who has experienced the role of a caregiver, not once, but twice has written a long needed guidebook for caregivers that provides guidance, tips, resources, compassion and advice that is all based on his own experience and desire to help others who struggle with the role of being a caregiver.
This book discusses Chris’ own recent experience which was widely documented through a Pulitzer Price nominated story from Florida about his role as a caregiver for his dying partner. What Chris learned is now provided in this book to help the millions of caregivers of all ages, races, sexual orientations and family situations.
