The Lessons of Caring

A practical approach, with helpful content and activities across eight “lessons,” The Lessons of Caring features video “shares” from the author and other caregivers.

“I wrote this book to help me work through and improve as a caregiver.  At the same time, my wish is this book will be helpful and hopeful to the reader,” says Marabella.  “There are so many people facing the challenges of caring for loved ones, many of whom are elderly.  I know that it can seem like a lonely road to travel, so I believe that by sharing these experiences of caregiving, others on similar journeys will know they are not alone and have support.”

“Readers who have embraced caregiving roles will likely find Marabella’s fast-paced and optimistic description of their new world both informative and encouraging. A very readable and supportive introduction to the job of caregiver.” – Kirkus Reviews, June 18, 2020 (read full review)
