'No Saints around Here' will give comfort to new caregivers
It was supposed to be paradisiacal.
You’d planned it that way, in fact: the two of you, retired, with time aplenty to travel, explore, garden, enjoy yourselves. It was supposed to be good – until one of you got sick and the other’s now a caregiver, a journey you never wanted or expected but… there you are. And in the new book “No Saints around Here” by Susan Allen Toth, you’ll see that you’re not alone.
There were fifteen years between Susan Allen Toth and her husband, James.
That’s not a lot of difference in age, really. It’s certainly not enough to make anyone fret about a future full of health issues, but that’s what arrived: while in his mid-70s, James was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
