THE CAREGIVERS by Nell Lake
Nell Lake spoke about her book, The Caregivers: A Support Group's Stories of Slow Loss, Courage, and Love, at Politics & Prose on Monday, March 10, 2014.
As more and more people provide health care to aging and ill relatives, they can learn from and support each other. Lake, a journalist, went from observing meetings of caregivers at a Massachusetts hospital in 2010 to more active participation with the group. Focusing on several of its members, her book documents the challenges, rewards, and policy issues of late-life care-giving.
