Bobbi Carducci's life was about to change. Her ill father-in-law 's odd behavior was a mystery when he came to live with her and Mike. For the next seven years Bobbi did everything she could to save him from himself-while he tried to convince everyone that he didn't need her and that she was crazy. "Brutally honest and written from the heart, Carducci's intimate chronicle of caring for her father-in-law is a poignant story of strength, compassion, and humor that will linger with you long after you read the last page. Highly recommended for anyone caring for an elderly parent." Jan Neuharth, author of the Hunt Country Suspense novels "Confessions of an Imperfect Caregiver, perfectly encapsulates the human experience, not just the caregiver's. When we live in a world of worry, stress and self-doubt, where do we find the strength to go on? Bobbi's retelling of her caregiving years unfolds in a beautiful answer to the questions posed by sickness, health, care, and loss." Alexandra Axel, Media Director, The Caregiver Space Bobbi is an award winning author and multi published short story writer. Her work has appeared in numerous anthologies and publications, in print and online. Bobbi's website and blog can be found at www.bobbicarducci.com and theimperfectcaregiver.com.

From the Author:

I wrote Confessions of an Imperfect Caregiver for caregivers, those who will become caregivers, and those who one day  need care.  I want to share our story so people understand how hard it is and also what a gift it can be to care for a loved one at home.
Caregivers are not saints or superheroes.Caregivers are ordinary people of all ages, in all walks of life, from all over the world doing the hardest job we will ever love.

About the Author:

Intrigued by TV doctors, Bobbi Carducci told everyone she was going to be a brain surgeon when she grew up.  When she couldn't bring herself to cut up a frog in biology class she realized she had to find another way to get inside people's heads and became a writer instead.
Bobbi was an in home caregiver for her serious ill father-in-law, Rodger, for seven years. Confessions of an Imperfect Caregiver is the first book in a planned Caregiver series depicting the true stories of people caring for loved ones at home.  

Caregiving comes naturally to Bobbi. "I come from a long line of caregivers, starting with my Great Grandmother's sister, Nellie, who took in my grandmother's newborn sister when their mother died in childbirth. Since then every generation has had at least one person caring for loved ones. Family takes care of family is ingrained in our beliefs.  That doesn't mean it's right for everyone. Being a home caregiver is incredibly hard and no one should feel guilty if they choose to allow others to step in. Not everyone is cut out to wrestle alligators while herding a dozen cats and being constantly tuned in to another's needs when sleep deprived and in desperate need to go to the bathroom."
