Long Distance Care-giving can be challenging—and one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

Caroline H. Sheppard shares her story and lessons learned, helping five different family members at the end stages of life. There are many “how to” books on care-giving, but few share their story–the raw emotions, the exhaustion–but that show how, in the end, the caregiver gains knowledge, wonderful gifts, and a deepened love and understanding for those they help.

Product Description

In her first book for adults, Caroline H. Sheppard shares her story of how she was called to oversee the care for five family members over a fifteen year period. She points out that our decisions can be clouded by the stress of watching loved ones who have always taken charge, fall apart psychologically. What we know intellectually is often out of sync with the way we handle things emotionally. She provides caregivers with support, validation and examples of what it takes to be a supportive and successful advocate. Through the stories the reader learns that enlisting the help of others is a sign of courage and strength.

When Family Calls normalizes the thoughts (positive & negative) and feelings that caregivers experience in challenging situations and helps readers understand that they are not alone.
There are many “how to” books on care-giving, but few share their story–the raw emotions, the exhaustion–but that show how, in the end, the caregiver gains knowledge, wonderful gifts, and a deepened love and understanding for those they help.
