“He really wanted me to go back to work. And I wanted to get back to work.”

In addition, Steve talked about the book he recently released, Time to thinkespecially for carers. He explained that the book was about his father’s memories when he was young and all the things he did for him as a child.
“My dad picked me up when I was little and held me. And when my father got sick, I picked him up and held him. My dad helped me put on my pajamas when I was little. And when I got older, I helped my dad put on his pajamas.”
He continued, “So I wrote this book, and it’s for healthcare providers. You know, in this country there are 35 million who take care of their parents. They are an unknown group because they are never together.”
“You are always apart. There are blogs to connect to, but that’s about it. So if you’re a caregiver, it’s very lonely. So I wrote a book for all caregivers in this country. I think this is going to be powerful.”
