SibCare: The Trip You Never Planned To Take
Now Available! This book grew out of Taffy Cannon’s experiences with her own brother’s complicated, long-distance illness. It’s organized to make it easy to find the information you need and avoid what you don’t. How do you get started? What do you need to know, and how can you find it out? What’s the medical situation, and what does that mean? What legal paperwork do you need, and why? And perhaps most important, how do you maintain your own sanity?
“Caring for a sister or brother with a disability or serious illness can be tricky across distance, competing family priorities, and personalities. SibCare is essential in orienting someone who may not know where to start. Its pages are filled with goal-oriented and practical advice: direct, no-nonsense, and useful. As a professional researcher, sibling organization founder, and sibling of two brothers with disabilities, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.”
