Counting on Kindness, by author Wendy Lustbader, MSW
Seattle social worker Wendy Lusbader is known for her engaging storytelling as well as her expertise in the area of aging. Here she writes about a subject that many of us don’t consider until we are personally involved in a care giving relationship, either needing to count on the kindness of others or when life calls on us to care for someone in our own family. Her book touches on sovereignty, autonomy, regret, loyalty and much more. “Many books have been written in support of caregivers, but this is still the only book depicting the dilemmas of dependency from the point of view of the person needing assistance.
