Behind Dianne Feinstein’s Headlines Lies an Untold Story

From a New York Times guest essay by Patti Davis headlined “Behind Dianne Feinstein’s Headlines Lies Another, Untold Story”:

Patti Davis, a daughter of President Ronald Reagan, is the author, most recently, of “Floating in the Deep End: How Caregivers Can See Beyond Alzheimer’s.”

Dianne Feinstein makes news these days for the health challenges that seem to keep mounting, but behind her story is another, which few pay attention to. It’s the story of the family and friends who are now caregivers, who juggle the unpredictability of the day-to-day with the inevitability of the long term. No matter how many people have traveled ahead of us on the caregiving journey and have shared their experiences, it always feels like a pilgrim’s path, lonely and strange.
