If you happen to be a caregiver to an ailing parent and also a pet-parent to a beloved, aging dog, I highly recommend you read Rebecca Warner's tender new novel, My Dad My Dog.
In her post on AlzAuthors.com Rebecca shares:
This is a work of fiction because my dad, who had Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and diabetes, never lived with me. Dad lived in a wonderful assisted living facility where he received exceptional care. I visited him every day, year in and year out, unless completely snowed-in or traveling. I took him to every doctor’s appointment and was involved in every decision about medical procedures, treatments, medications and therapy. Yes, as his Health Care Surrogate I had duties; but as his daughter, I acted out of pure love.
