Description

Four in 10 U.S. adults are now caring for a sick or elderly family member at home. 43.5 million adult family caregivers care for someone fifty years of age or older who is ill or who has a disability. Author Harriet K. Swenson--a former Addison-Wesley staffer, workshop leader and educator for the United Church of Christ, magazine columnist, fiber designer and quilter--writes eloquently, humorously and truthfully about caring for her second husband at home after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and COPD. Remembering her "first class" second husband, David Swenson, a geologist from New Hampshire's Swenson Granite family, Harriet's essays provide a new look at love. From blunt to lyrical, factual to spiritual her short commentaries reveal the depth of self-discovery and the truth about a role generally ignored. From mail-order meds and Yankee frugality, to the solace of quilting and rotten days, Harriet's former residence in a Shaker community fosters a readiness to evaluate life experience against spiritual imperatives.
