Me? A Caregiver?

Author Bio: 

Mary Beth Harris is an award winning author, consultant and speaker. “When I was caregiving for my mother I found it so much harder than I ever expected. I knew that millions of Baby Boomers would soon find themselves in this challenging situation and I wanted to share my knowledge and help them navigate their way through these rough waters. That was the inspiration for writing the book. From the book came speaking engagements. Caregiving is not just about children taking care of parents but parents taking care of a disabled child, or a spouse taking care of a spouse.
