Anyone with common sense either knows or could figure out 98% of what is written in this book. No magic solutions. The author's answer to juggling work and caregiving; work from home, rely on friends and family, avail yourself of caregiving agencies and consider assisted living. There I just said it in one sentence. No need to write a book.

Anyone who is a working ether full or part time AND caring for a loved one must read this book. There is so much useful and helpful information in this book - and it is all practical real life advice and guidance - not theoretical or academic

I loved this book because it made me realize that I am not alone in working and caring for a loved one. The kindle version is free but the tips and great advice are priceless

This tailored right to me and what I am involved in, in life. I was happy to see it on the free book list for Kindle Fire. If you are
a caregiver, than I recommend you download this.

everything that was written was very true, I am a caregiver to my spouse who is 39 with dementia related illness and I am also the breadwinner, so I have to work and it was very refreshing to know how to juggle both work and caregiving and not neglect either one. It explained how to set boundaries for both and how to do everything else involved with caregiving. Being a caregiver is not easy but with this book it is easier to balance everything. I have done a lot of things that were said but some of the things I have never even thought of and it explains how to talk to your employer, and how to prioritize your daily living.

I found that out of all the publications I've read about & from Caregivers (& there's been a huge amount), this one is the BEST!!! so far. Amy really nails the challenges of being a Caregiver, regardless of who & why your taking care of someone. My husband had a stroke 2 years ago & it left some severe disabilities in it's path. This book applies to all of us who are taking care of a loved one; whether you're working or not - which I am. Her experiance & openness is absolutely spot on for those of us who are the 'primary' caregiver. I laughed, acknowledged, & even cried at the points & examples she gave. I'm trying to find a way to print it so I can share it with the circle of people who 'don't get it' (being a caregiver). This book says it all & has a lot of really good tips/advise on how to take care of us - the Caregivers, without being ridiculas. I especially LOVE the 'Job Description' she gives in the begining....that one is going on my fridge:) By the way....As of this writing I haven't even finished the book yet but I'm so excited about it at this point I had to write something now. Thank You Amy for your knowledge, support, understanding, sharing & acknowledgement of our job!!!!!

I like this book. But I was looking for something that would help me figure out how to replace my income while in the mire of caregiving. IT's a neglected aspect of caregiving --but the book is nice for those who still have their jobs.

This is an excellent book for anyone caring for a loved one, whether that loved one is a family member or friend. It helps the caregiver understand the dynamics of what it means to be a care provider, especially if they also work outside the caregiving setting. The book gives tips to handle the "job" of being a caregiver in a more efficient, helpful way, and talks about self-care---the slippery slope for the person taking care of anyone who is disabled, chronically ill, or terminal. "Juggling Work and Caregiving" is written by a woman who works for AARP, but also cares for both of her chronically ill parents, so she knows what she's talking about.

While part of this book is more of a workbook and many of us caregivers are too busy caregiving to do the extra work in it, this book is a valuable guide to have on hand when caregiving. I also liked the fact that the author put a job description at the end of each chapter. This shows how much caregiving enriches people's lives and how much doing the caregiving is great training for another job, either that or continuing to caregive as a life career.
