New Book: “A Guide for Caregiving: What’s Next?” coming in August!

A blend of stressful and complex feelings can be triggered when someone becomes a caregiver. There is no doubt that the role can be a difficult one. Best-selling and prolific author Tina Marrelli compassionately took on this complex topic after her sweet 96-year-old father-in-law moved in with Tina and her husband for three years. Tina has written 12 books for professional caregivers and realized that families, friends and other caregivers need their own book. This Guide is the result of that work. It seeks to make health care understandable and to help family, friends and other caregivers be valued and recognized as the expert on their loved one’s care.
