    Hardcover Î Ladysitting PDF Þ ladysitting epub, Ladysitting MOBIAfter hearing Lorene Carey speak recently at the Free Library of Philadelphia I couldn't wait to listen to the audiobook read by the author I enjoyed it every bit as much as I expected to Carey has a wry sense of humor as well as great empathy and narrated the story of her relationship with her grandmother with wit and compassion while also giving voice to the conflicting emotions she experienced while caring for her grandmother during the last years of her life first while her grandmother continued to live alone in her home in Collingswood and later when she came to live with Carey and her family in Philadelphia Like Grandma Jackson my vision of a good death includes good health and independence for many years then going to sleep one night and just not waking up But if I don't get my wish I hope to have care givers around me who are as patient loving and compassionate as Carey and her family members
