Publisher's Summary

Tears in My Gumbo: The Caregiver's Recipe for Resilience is a heartfelt manuscript that speaks personally and passionately to the 44 million caregivers caught up in the silver tsunami sweeping this country and for all of the people who care about the caregivers.
The book inspires and supports caregivers as well as the family unit involved in the loved one's care. Through a series of caregiver stories, the book illustrates the ingredients needed for caregivers to maintain resilience and create a soul-nurturing gumbo of care.
Artfully written by caregiver coach and consultant Nadine Roberts Cornish, CSA, the book shares her personal experience as a caregiver for her mother, which transformed her life; she became a care consultant, a care manager, and a caregiver coach. A native of New Orleans, Nadine shares her rich family heritage simmered in the traditions of gumbo preparation, steeped in love and community, seasoned with wisdom, humor, and healing, much like a heaping bowl of Louisiana seafood gumbo. Each story teaches a different lesson demonstrating varying degrees of knowhow and courage. This book is ultimately about healing.

Simply wonderful!

I loved this book from start to finish. The stories were beautifully told, from Nadine's clients to her personal experience with her mother and grandmother.

Although this book was written in regards to adult caregivers; I've found many uses to where I can apply this to my daily use in caring for children 0-5 and working with their parents.

This is most definitely a book that I will be recommending and reading again :)
