Caregivers: The Forgotten Patient
Dr. Monica D. Hardy
This book represents what my thoughts and emotions were as a caregiver; things I could not or simply did not want to verbalize. I started writing this book while taking care of my dad and it was grumpy cartoon characters that provided a much needed release. At times, I could not find comfort in the words of people because all they could see was my dad and his pain. So this book allowed me to just say it through various written expressions! In writing this book, I wanted to acknowledge the highs and lows of a caregiver; they are the forgotten patient during times of care. This book is a voice, advocate and outlet for the caregiver. Their love language of service will not be understood from those on the outside. Hopefully, this body of writing will give a behind the scenes of this tremendous service.
