Amy Goyer

A staggering 42 million Americans―one in four adults―face the challenges of caring for an adult friend or relative. Although caregiving can be a richly rewarding and joyful experience, the role comes with enormous responsibilities―and pressures. AARP’s gentle guide provides practical resources and tips that are easy to find when you need them, whether you’re caregiving day to day, planning for future needs, or in the middle of a crisis. Equally important, this book helps you care for the caregiver―you―before, during, and after caregiving.

  1. Good job Amy! The 75 year old guy (with Parkinsons) doing extreme obstacle events was pretty amazing- and a lot different from the Parkinsons folks calling us for help. Very nice appearance on the show and congratulations on your new book.
