Eleanor Gaccetta Shares the Joys and Challenges of Providing Full-Time Care for Her Mother

The author openly and heartfully shares her personal caregiving journey in her published book, “One Caregiver’s Journey.”


A heartwarming memoir that describes the author’s joys and challenges of caring for her mother full-time.

The author, nicknamed Ellie, was forced to end her forty-year career in the public sector to look after her mother full-time after she fell and broke her hip at a family dinner. Ellie became her mother’s full-time caregiver for 9 ˝ years as her mother’s dementia and other age-related issues worsened. Her mother passed away at the age of 102 in Ellie’s home. She chronicled her experiences as a caregiver for her mother in a memoir aptly titled “One Caregiver’s Journey.”

When Ellie’s mother turned 90, she started showing signs of slowing down. Adding to her burden and distraught was the death of her oldest son to stomach cancer and the death of her two remaining sisters. At that time, she began having anxiety attacks and was afraid to be alone for long periods of time, which caused Ellie to terminate her employment with the City and County of Broomfield, CO. She returned to working for the State of Colorado as a private contractor for another three years, which allowed her to work mostly from home. Over the span of the next nine and a half years, Ellie cared for her mother, who would live until the age of 102.

“One Caregiver’s Journey” heartfully captures the moments between caregiver and patient, between daughter and mother. It is not just a heartwarming memoir that describes Ellie’s experiences and challenges in providing full-time care for her mother; it is also an insightful book that digs deeper into caregiving and provides practical suggestions that anyone can use to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their loved one. In reading the book you will feel as though you are in her living room having a discussion about her experiences.
