All books are available from San Juan Publishing Bookstore and also Listed on Amazon under San Juan Publishing. Caregiving books are available in quantity and at wholesale price to any organization or institution that assists seniors or those with disabilities, their caregivers, and as educational material for classes and workshops. The Caregiver’s Journey is intentionally brief and not designed to have all the answers -- unlike The Complete Eldercare Planner which is comprehensive and extensive. The book carries readers to safe emotional safe ground when they find themselves in a “deer-in-the-headlights” eldercare moment. The reception of Terri Robinson's first book written for and about caregivers, "Riding the Care Go Round", is now followed with the sequel, bringing her journey to the present. "The Carousel Horse Named Comfort" describes how the intervening years have enriched her in a myriad of ways. Tia Amdurer and Chris Renaud-Cogswell’s new book provides comfort, practical hints, resources, emotional support and humor as caregivers take this often challenging journey. If you are beginning this process or know someone else who is, I strongly suggest obtaining a copy of this book.
