SCATTERED: MY YEAR AS AN ACCIDENTAL CAREGIVER
Scattered sheds a much-needed light on the plight of baby boomers everywhere, eager to thrive in their own lives but put to the test by aging parents–and often unprepared for what lays ahead.
“A searingly honest, poignant, and interesting account of a professional woman turned care partner to her mother who was living with dementia.“
– Cathie Borrie, Author of The Long Hello: Memory, My Mother, and Me
ABOUT JANA AND AGEWYZ
Author and caregiving expert Jana Panarites was born in Washington, DC. Her memoir, SCATTERED: MY YEAR AS AN ACCIDENTAL CAREGIVER, recounts her experience of rebuilding two lives at once, her mother’s and her own, following her father’s sudden death. A story of optimism and perseverance, it will be familiar to a generation of baby boomers, thrust without warning into reverse parenting amid the demands of their own lives.
In December 2014 Jana founded Agewyz Media Group, LLC to raise awareness in the media about the plight of caregivers in the US and to promote healthy aging across the generations. Through her book, her weekly podcast series and in-person conversations, she aims to inspire individuals, help them feel less isolated, and provide them with tools and resources to make every moment in life count, at every age and even under the most difficult of circumstances.
