Once She Was Young: The Loss of a Mother, the Growth of a Daughter
Marsha J. O’Brien
Our elderly face a bleak horizon. Caregivers hold the world of those who need help in their hands. Marsha spent ten years as her mother’s caregiver, during which time the two women learned critical lessons.
This book gives exceptional answers to questions people are afraid to ask. Emotions that come along with aging and death need taming. NO ONE need be unprepared. We all age and die, but it should not be a mystery as to the loving and positive ways to handle it.
