I’m Here for the Bath was a labor of love for me to write. In the sixty plus short stories that I put together for you I shared not only the experiences of the people I served and their caregivers but my own as well. My life unfolded during the thirty plus years I cared for the dying and supported the people around them. My work as a hospice aide molded me, shaped me and guided me in ways I could not have imagined. I honor the people I cared for and the people I worked with in these pages. I have not seen another book written in this way by a caregiver like me. Enjoy
