“Silverberg's Keeping It Together focuses on your welfare as the care provider for a chronically ill family member. A must-read if you do not want to lose yourself in the caregiving world or if you are losing yourself and need to find your way to move forward with more resilience to 'keep it together'. Silverberg combines compassion and innovation in providing tools to tackle common but often unspoken challenges that family caregivers face and in providing an opportunity to come out the other end more personally enriched.”

Take a Look Inside
Keeping It Together was written specifically for individuals caring for aging parents, ailing and chronically ill family members, introducing you to a new language and new perspective for coping NOT with the "symptoms" but rather the reactions to circumstances of adversity and situational loss that family caregivers face.
Situational Loss is the loss of a person, thing or quality resulting from alteration of a life situation involving changes related to illness, body image, environment and death.
Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 8th Ed. (2009)
Acknowledge, Assess, Assist are the action words of Silverberg's 3-A coping framework highlighted throughout the book used to help you navigate, self-monitor with self-awareness for self-care to address the adversity and situational losses involved with caregiving.

“Keeping It Together” is helping me to ‘keep it together’! As full time, caregiver for my husband who is living with dementia, I find Eleanor Silverberg’s practical wisdom and encouragement in the pages of her book a desired and welcome support. The incorporation of the “voices” of actual caregivers throughout the book provided a point of connection and companionship for me. The “KIT” exercises are a gentle invitation to claim the book’s content in light of my own challenging journey.

"Keeping It Together: How to Cope as a Family Caregiver Without Losing Your Sanity" is a source of hope. Eleanor Silverberg's three-step program, acknowledge, assess, assist, is insightful and workable. The caregiver role is one that contains grief, according to Silverberg, and she makes this point clearly. She urges beginning and experienced caregivers like me to practice self-care. Her book is well organized, easy to read, contains helpful exercises, and a topical reference list. Keeping It Together is a family caregiver's lifeline--strength for the present, hope for the future."
