A Book for Adult Caretakers

For any of you who are taking care of your elderly parents, or have or are thinking about it, this kindle offering is important to read.  If you were a follower of the Barklee Pontree blog, it is Dick Lane's edited three-year journey taking care of his father who suffered from Alzheimer's.
 You will laugh and cry, be frustrated and joyful.
It is not a how-to book, but you'll wonder if you could DIY. If you have done it, you will relate.  If you are considering being your parents primary caretaker, you will be better informed about the joys and sacrifices involved.

Above all, you will come to respect and admire a son who loved his dad, and lived to share their story.
