Ephesians 6:2-3 (NIV) exhorts us: "'Honor your father and mother.'" However, what happens when the commitment to honoring our parent's leads us to feel guilty or make poor decisions based on self-reproach or lack of information and resources? Having acknowledged that, there is something-someone-else we need to consider. It is the other perspective: that of the aging loved one who begins to need more care. What is it like to suddenly become dependent on others? If I Walked In Her Shoes shares a firsthand look at these dynamics by inviting you to view one day from two very different perspectives: Rose, the elderly mother in need of care and Sara, the dutiful caregiving daughter. Rose and Sara exemplify the issues faced by families trying to care for an aging loved one. You will experience their struggles, triumphs, and the underlying love that is the foundation of their relationship. A pioneering author and speaker on caregiving and aging issues, author and national speaker Sue Salach utilizes her personal and professional experiences to educate and empower family caregivers, healthcare and business professionals. Her unique writing style and profound, honest message has brought her to the forefront of the caregiving and aging field. Along with her writing and speaking, Sue works full time in the geriatric health care field and is the executive editor of Chicago and Los Angeles CAREgiver Magazine. Sue is most noted for her caregiver resource guide Along Comes Grandpa, Caregiving Resources for People in the Real World, which shares her story of caring for her grandfather and realistic tips for family caregivers as they maneuver through their caregiving journey. Sue lives in the Chicagoland area with her husband Rev. Paul Cutler and her 4 dogs.
