More than 65 million Americans are caring for loved ones today – a number expected to almost double over the next 20 years as our society faces an increasingly older population with aging baby boomers and longer life spans for those with chronic diseases and other disorders. Sherri Snelling, a noted expert on family caregiving, has released a new book titled “A Cast of Caregivers – Celebrity Stories to Help you Prepare to Care” that addresses the issue of caregiving and its increasing prevalence in society.
The book includes interviews with celebrities describing their experiences in caregiving, what to expect when you are in a caregiving situation, and lastly self-care advice with advice on how to approach the caregiving conversation with a loved one. AARP® Caregiving Help and Advice from Genworth’s own Bob Bua says: "Snelling gets it! At last, a fun to read book about real people, real stories and valuable lessons in being prepared for our own inevitable caregiving journeys. You will laugh and cry reading these stories - but most of all you will learn you are not alone."
