Run, Walk, Crawl: A Caregiver Caught Between Generations – Book Promotion
I received a copy of ”Run, Walk, Crawl: A Caregiver Caught Between Generations” ($16.99 value/Amazon) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Eldercare caregiving is a strenuous, tedious job for women (moms especially) when sandwiched between childcare, wifely duties, full-time work, and quality time with your spouse.
Will you get to work on time
if you drop your child off at school and then stop to check on your dad who is independently living? More and more women are feeling the squeeze of “doing it all”, realizing the demanding lifestyle it poses. But can it be done?
In Run, Walk, Crawl: A Caregiver Caught Between Generations,
Sarahbeth Persiani gives us a candid walk of her life of “trying to do it all”…caregiving for her elderly father, making sure she’s spending enough time with her daughter and husband, and trying to keep focused and be top of her game in her workplace. Was she successful? Could she do it all?
Sarahbeth puts herself all out there
sharing her personal highs and lows of caregiving. And in her lows, she shares the depths of what is truly important and what accomplishments truly have meaning to her.
During this time,
she also realized she was stronger in areas she was doubtful in and really brought her around to know what she wanted in life and her true journey of where she was heading. Faith also became a HUGE part of her transition of being the person she was meant to be.
Run, Walk, Crawl: A Caregiver Caught Between Generations is a must-read
for those who are family caregivers, but also very appropriate for those people in any managerial position or Huron Resources to understand the capacity of many of our hardworking women and the challenges they face. This book can be purchased at any local book stores or Amazon.
