The Unexpected Jouney of Caring

The Unexpected Journey of Caring is a practical guide to finding personal meaning in the 21st-century care experience. Written by Donna Thomson, Zachary White, and with a forward from Judy Woodruff.

Informed by original caregiver research and proven advocacy strategies, this book speaks to caregiving as it unfolds, in all of its confusion, chaos, and messiness. Readers won’t find well-intentioned clichés or care stereotypes in this book. There are no promises to help caregivers return to a life they knew before caregiving. This book greets caregivers where they are in their journey—new or chronic—not where others expect (or want) them to be.
