Caregiving can be lonely, no matter what stage you're at. Millions of people worldwide struggle with caring for loved ones while still trying to care for themselves. You don't need to learn about caregiving all on your own. In Caregiving Insights, author Lise Leblanc has compiled brief stories and lessons from experts in the field and people just like you who have been caregivers themselves.
Focusing on what other caregivers have learned, from setting boundaries and self care to being vulnerable and taking time to listen, the short stories in Caregiving Insights offer gentle advice from a trusted friend who has been there. Each story shines a light on just one facet of the process, so you can return to this book when your story begins to coincide.
This book is edited by Lise Leblanc and features stories by the following: Lina Miranda, Amanda Gagne, Penny Tremblay, Lise Leblanc, Karen Hourtovenko, Bonnie Mulvihill, Wendy Hill, Sandi Emdin, Carole Tessier, Lynne Golding, Kimberley Rivando-Robb, Theresa Albert, and Caroline Tapp-Macdougall.

About the authors

Lise Leblanc has the experience and insight to make your caregiving journey a little lighter. As a registered psychotherapist, conflict resolution specialist and caregiver she has seen the impact that caregiving without personal care can wreak on all lives involved. Her personal lived experience has also shaped her useful perspectives. She was the main caregiver for her grandmother who had Alzheimer's disease when her grandfather died suddenly. Her own parents and siblings lived afar and she was working full time while raising her two young children. The experience has shaped her dedication to helping people take responsibility for the quality of their own lives at the same time as making space to support a conscious caregiving model.
