Survival of the Caregiver is the result of all the author's, Janice Hucknall Snyder's, ins and outs, ups and downs of caring for her husband for 20 years when he had Parkinson's Disease and Dementia.

This book is written from the heart. It is as personal and nurturing as it is informative. The author chose to use an alphabetical list of topics so that a busy caregiver can refer to a special need quickly. It is the author's hope that this book will aid other caregivers in their sad, but meaningful journey with their loved one.

"I found the book to be wonderfully creative, going through each letter of the alphabet, touching on all the thoughts, feelings and things that caregivers go through, on a daily basis.  This book is a treasure and should be on every caregivers bookshelf.  I'm glad to have it on mine."
