Grab Happy: The Serendipitous and Surprising Sides of Caregiving and Survival is a practical guide shaped via a memoir-in-essays that explores the harrowing, surreal and often infuriating journey of caregiving for aging parents while raising young children. In addition to its stories of combative siblings and elusive car keys, you'll find hands-on advice gained through decades' worth of hard-fought experience. You'll also discover a strong case for changing the way Americans think about dying. Filled with relatable scenarios featuring oblivious surgeons, gut-wrenching decisions, and unenviable role reversals, Grab Happy offers a fresh, honest take on critical topics facing more and more grown-up children around the world.

 

Elissa Yancey, MS Ed, is a lifelong storyteller with a background as a successful journalist, community builder and educator. She was a constant caregiver for her mother, Gladys Yancey, during the last 10 years of her life. In Grab Happy, she honors her strong and strong-willed mother as she aims to make the prospect of life in a "sandwich generation" a little less daunting for those facing uncertain futures alongside complicated relationships.
