    A great book for new and seasoned caregivers! As a medical social worker, I see many of these issues everyday and Barb addresses them with insight and compassion. Her personal and professional experiences give her the insight to write this book. The book offers validation to caregivers who need to know that they are doing things right and that support of others is invaluable.
