Take My Hand
The Caregiver’s Journey
Tia Amdurer, Chris Renaud-Cogswell
Take My Hand is a welcome, practical guide for the emotional journey of caregiving.
The caregiver’s twisting and emotional journey is often bittersweet, combining feelings of exhaustion, reflection, love, frustration, delight, denial, connection, and loneliness. Just as they have taken on hand-holding for a loved one who needs multi-faceted support, many caregivers understandably feel overwhelmed and find themselves wishing for someone to guide them. Take My Hand is that resource.
Written by Tia Amdurer, a Licensed Professional Counselor with a background in hospice, bereavement, grief, and loss, Take My Hand is structured into stand-alone chapters that can serve as a practical guide while navigating the different aspects of care for a loved one during the final years.
Within each chapter are the witty, insightful, and heartfelt commentaries from Chris Renaud-Cogswell, penned as she took on the role of caregiver for her parents. Pages for note-taking and journaling are formatted to encourage self-reflection along the way.
