Close friends, and business associates of Dowdle gathered in praise of her new accomplishment. The party was filled with gratitude from many who believe that this book is greatly needed as baby boomers are now facing enormous challenges when carrying for their parents and loved ones.
The book is honest, and forthcoming in explaining Dowdle’s own personal experiences in caregiving as well gives the reader valuable tips and information. It’s not just about facts and figures but real issues, and day to day concerns from the first onset of a parent’s illness to the final transition. One gentleman commented, “I read an advance copy, the last 3 chapters had me welling up pretty much, holding back the tears. Wasn’t quite what I expected but should have. The book is very matter of fact. It’s powerful. It’s full of invaluable information. I learned a great deal about myself, my readiness for this chapter in my mom’s life, or lack there of. If other readers are like me, they will be moved by your personal experiences and apply what you shared…thanks for writing this.”
“All I know is that if I would have had a book like this while I was going through the caregiving process. I would have been much better prepared, organized and emotionally ready for what was lying ahead,” said Dowdle. “I attribute the ability to put these thoughts into words due to my lifetime commitment of enjoying, experiencing and understanding the incredible senior relationships I have encountered,”
