This week June 24, 2019 my guest was the author of Tears In My Gumbo: The Caregiver’s Recipe for Resilience by Nadine Roberts Cornish
Tears in My Gumbo, The Caregiver’s Recipe for Resilience is a heartfelt manuscript that speaks personally and passionately to the 44 million caregivers caught up in the silver tsunami sweeping this country and for all of the people who care about the caregiver. The book inspires and supports caregivers as well as the family unit involved in the loved one’s care. Through a series of caregiver stories, the book illustrates the ingredients needed for caregivers to maintain resilience and create a soul nurturing gumbo of care.
Artfully written by caregiver coach and consultant, Nadine Roberts Cornish, CSA, the book shares her personal experience as a caregiver for her mother, which transformed her life as she becomes a care consultant, care manager, and caregiver coach. A native of New Orleans, Nadine shares her rich family heritage simmered in the traditions of gumbo preparation, steeped in love and community, seasoned with wisdom, humor and healing, much like a heaping bowl of Louisiana Seafood Gumbo
