Should You Read My Book? Ask Amy!

I was delighted and honored on June 28th, 2023, when Amy Dickinson, nationally-syndicated advice columnist, recommended my book, The Conscious Caregiver, to her readers in her “Ask Amy” column!

A family caregiver wrote in because she was at the end of her rope with her mother and “her stress level is through the roof.” We’ve all been there with our care recipients, haven’t we?

Amy replied with very good steps to take to lighten the caregiver’s load and then added, “You might benefit from reading The Conscious Caregiver: A Mindful Approach to Caring for Your Loved One Without Losing Yourself by Linda Abbit.” Wow! What a wonderful surprise!

I don’t know if Amy Dickinson is or was a caregiver, but if so, I hope my book helped her on her caregiving journey. I’m also very appreciative that she shed light on family caregivers, their struggles and the support we all need as we go through this challenging experience. Thank you, Amy!
