Some caregivers are asked to take on more than we can imagine . . . and we want to know how they do it!
In When the Voiceless Sing we will meet Keith who has at one time or another cared for his two boys who are each struggling with additions, dyslexia and Asperger's syndrome. He also caress for his frail mom and mother-in–law. He even continues to care for the Professional Caregiver who took care of both mothers and now has cancer herself.
“Giving care to another is the work on ourselves we were born to do, the healing we took birth for. It is the hardest and most wonderful work we will ever do. We are the worn and the blessed. It feels that we are half way between heaven and hell in so many ways. We end up taking responsibility for the life that was given us by aiding those whose lives are fleeting.” A message from our hearts . . . all the best. ~ Stephen and Ondrea Levine

“When the Voiceless Sing opened my eyes to the power and rewards of the caregiving experience. Instead of thinking about caring for a patient as a task, I now see it as mutual relationship with potential for the Caregiver’s growth as well as giving support for someone who is vulnerable.” ~ Pat. W. New York City educator

”During our two year book club, using the manuscript for When the Voiceless Sing, we received very practical information from our discussions and are richer to know about dementia and the many other issues involved in Caregiving. The book was down to earth, honest, and to the point and very useful in helping us be better Caregivers. We are grateful to be able to share these gifts in caring for our sisters and the people we meet each and every day.” ~ Sr. Patricia Burke from Graymoor Convent
