The Caregiving Season: Finding Grace to Honor Your Aging Parents
Caring for elderly parents is challenging. It’s a season of life that requires grace and strength that can only come from God. In The Caregiving Season, Jane Daly shares personal caregiving stories, offering practical advice to help you honor your aging parents well and deepen your personal relationship with Christ along the journey.
Daly (Because of Grace) has found through experience that it’s possible to navigate the guilt, exhaustion, and frustration of dealing with aging parents with grace and fortitude that comes from depending on Christ. The author considers all of the practical issues in caregiving, from mourning losses, handling medical and financial matters, and dealing with situations such as taking away car keys. She counsels people to not only take care of themselves but to develop a sense of love, forgiveness, and peace when coping with a parent’s dementia or unrealistic demands. VERDICT: Although geared toward those with a Christian faith, this book will help the countless baby boomers who are providing for their loved ones. (Library Journal)
