A Journey for Two
Mother and Daughter Caregiving Relationships
Jeanne R. Lord
Explores the mother-daughter relationship in the context of caregiving
Jeanne Lord provides valuable emotional support and information for daughter caregivers to mother patients during a stressful and uncertain time. It is unique in that it offers not only personal insights from caregiving daughters, but the perspectives of their mothers, as well. Lord followed the women on their journeys over the course of ten years, so the follow-up interviews give readers an opportunity to fast forward into the future lives of the caregiving daughters to read about their perspectives, and gain insights into new attitudes and ideas for life after caregiving.
Through compelling stories of a variety of mother-daughter relationships and in-depth interviews, the very complex relationships between mothers and daughters in a caregiving situation are explored and revealed in an objective light. Offering comfort and understanding to the reader, the book also offers suggestions, ideas, resources, and support for navigating the care of their loved one.
