"Caring for a parent whose health is in decline is a deeply meaningful way to express your love and loyalty. But if you've picked up this book, chances are you're also struggling with some aspect of your role as a caregiver. Whether you're tired of clashes with siblings, frustrated that your parent no longer seems to appreciate your help, or confused by ambivalent feelings, you're not alone. The emotional toll of caregiving is seldom acknowledged, but the costs are tremendous and the potential for burnout is high. Barry Jacobs has been there - both as therapist and as a child who felt the impact of caregiving on his own family. He helps you make sense of the turmoil and teaches you ways to cope with competing loyalties, role reversals, and the vicissitudes of illness." "Above all, this book emphasizes the need for clear communication and mutual respect among family members. It can help you and your loved ones grow closer and stronger as you navigate one of life's most difficult passages."--Cover flap.
