Surviving Eldercare: Where Their Needs End and Yours Begin by Ellen Besso
Surviving Eldercare is about making sure the caregiver takes care of herself; emotionally, physically and spiritually. She will spend an average of 20 hours per week in her role of caregiver; the risk of burnout is unavoidable because she is also balancing marriage, work and school age children.
Author, Ellen Besso was also caregiver for her mother so she knows how emotionally overwhelming the process is. Surviving Eldercare reveals the steps that can be taken to ensure the caregiver feels able to cope, ways to handle the stress and how and where to turn for help and support. Each chapter is carefully written to cover every aspect of the midlife woman who has been thrust into the role of caregiver.
Ellen Besso holds a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology and is a Martha Beck Certified Coach. Ellen's writing on topics like caregiving and self-care as well as her volunteer work and travels strike a chord in today's midlife women. Ellen is planning her third trip to Dharamsala, India where she will be working with Tibetan women experiencing violence in their relationships and will resume tutoring Tibetan students. She is near completion of her second book in the MidLife Maze Series, a memoir of India.
