She was having the time of her life shopping in New York. Little did she know that only three weeks later, she would be unable to move her legs, dress herself, or provide even minimal activities of daily living. This was the fate of the strong woman who provided care for me all of my life. With little notice, I found myself responsible for her care. I was suddenly a caregiver, privileged to watch and participate as she transitioned from independence to dependence, as she trusted in God through good times and bad, and as she triumphed through it all. This book will provide inspiration and encouragement to all that find themselves with the awesome responsibility of caregiving or providing support to the caregiver. Each Devotional is spiritually uplifting with real life experiences and provides valuable information on advanced planning, supports available to caregivers, and the power of God to take you through.

From the critically acclaimed author of This Burns My Heart comes a “luminous mother-daughter saga” (Entertainment Weekly) about a young woman who is forced to flee 1980s Brazil for California, and in doing so unearths the hidden life of her enigmatic mother. Mara Alencar’s mother Ana is her moon, her sun, her stars. Ana, a struggling voice-over actress, is an admirably brave and recklessly impulsive woman who does everything in her power to care for her little girl in perilous 1980s Rio de Janeiro. With no other family or friends her own age, Ana eclipses Mara’s entire world. They take turns caring for each other—in ways big and small. But who is Ana, really? As she grows older, Mara slowly begins to piece together the many facets of Ana’s complicated life—a mother, a rebel, and always, an actress. When Ana becomes involved with a civilian rebel group attempting to undermine the city’s cruel Police Chief, their fragile arrangement begins to unravel. Mara is forced to flee the only home she’s ever known, for California, where she lives as an undocumented immigrant, caregiving for a dying woman. It’s here that she begins to grapple with her turbulent past and starts to uncover vital truths—about her mother, herself, and what it means to truly take care of someone. A “lovely and heartbreaking” (People) story that is “simultaneously dreamlike and visceral” (The Atlantic), The Caregiver is “a beautiful testament to Samuel Park’s extraordinary talents as a storyteller…that reads, in some moments, like a thriller—and, in others, like a meditation on what it means to be alive…A ferocious page-turner with deep wells of compassion for the struggles of the living—and the sins of the dead” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

This unique book is a biography that began in the pocket of Ruth by taking simple notes with pencil and paper, day or night, for seven years, discovering “100 peculiarities of Alzheimer’s disease.” Unlike other books on this subject, she prepares the caregiver for “What to expect next?” Each peculiarity illustrates the particular stage it occurred, and ways that help both patient and caregiver develop a good bond of friendship. You will learn her method of “Touch and Speak” when your patient is unmanageable to dress. Most of all you will grow in faith with a new inimitable love, which became a growing experience for Ruth and Naomi. She chose the biblical characters of Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz for the many ways her book parallels the caring relationship during a crisis that occurs in the book of Ruth. Realizing the depth of depression that can happen, she addresses the Devil’s goal to discourage believers and cause misery and doubt. Scriptures will encourage you while she takes you through many major decisions you may face until your patient’s death. She has great empathy and admiration for caregivers since the majority of them never planned to be one. When your desires are to glorify our heavenly Father and His Son, and you find times when everything seems to go awry, it may be messengers of the Evil One, who do not want you to succeed. Be of good cheer. Jesus will lift your load and stand beside you all the way!

"Love is an uneasy river. It flows deep, with emotional currents that will not be contained in a single spot. Always moving, always evolving, it carries with it all the fragments of life it collects along the way..." A River Called Forever is a true and inspirational story about aging, life, love, and death. It chronicles the journey that begins when a twenty-nine year old baby boomer is thrust into the role of parental caregiver and ends twenty-two years later with the death of both parents. Along the way there are lighthearted explorations into the reasons God gives us families, parents as hooligans, and the patience to survive them, all set against the backdrop of growing up in the 1950-60's. The work also reveals the increasing challenge of our society as forty-five million Americans face the reality of caring for those who once cared for them. The story pivots around a mother's deathbed and the resurrection of life's memories in the final hours. It offers an in-depth glimpse into a profound encounter that altered one family's perception forever. A River Called Forever exists as a testament to hope-eternal for all those who will take on the responsibility of caring for others. Visit www.arivercalledforever.com for additional information.
