Gail Sheehy says THE DWINDLING is daring yet compassionate. This fun memoir mirrors the stories, gifts and challenges of family caregivers everywhere.
She came of age working with communities high in the Himalayas. She spent half a lifetime working for the disadvantaged of the world and lived in Asia and Africa. Then the dwindling time hit hard. Janet and her twin sister became family caregivers for frail and fading Mom and Dad. For ten long years that were over in a flash, they learned the ropes of slow dying while living large. The experience needed to become a memoir. So Janet became a writer. Now she's a storyteller and a deep listener and an advocate for getting things working better for all of us so our own last chapter can be something beautiful.
