Growing Bolder


Millions of Americans provide some kind of care for a loved one. Are you in that group? Maybe it's for a family member or friend who is facing a chronic illness or disease, has become disabled or just needs extra support. The job is often thankless, exhausting and frustrating, and you may find yourself feeling isolated and losing hope.

Amy O’Rourke is one of America’s top advocates for caregivers and families, and in this The Art of Caregiving Minute, she explains why you have to be forceful and patient when it comes to advocating for your loved one.

Get her tips for communicating with physicians and getting them to slow down and take the time to make thoughtful decisions about your loved one’s future.

Bethanne Weiss was one of those caregivers, and she spoke candidly about the joys and struggles of caring for her aging parents. You can watch that story here. This week, Bethanne shared a sad update:
"My 'Mommy,' one of earth's most beautiful angels, went to heaven today. I'm usually a woman of many words, but I'm at a loss right now. Thank you, everyone, for all the support and love you've been showing me and my family for so long."

We send our love to her family and our gratitude for their willingness to shine a spotlight on an issue that affects so many families.

In a brand new Bolder Books segment, we welcome back a frequent Growing Bolder guest and one of the most read authors in America today.

There’s a pretty good chance you know him through characters like Alex Cross, Michael Bennett and through series like Women’s Murder Club, Private, NYPD Red and many more.

Of course, we’re talking about James Patterson. He has sold well over 350 million books and holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers.

He’s just released The Black Book, which he co-authored with David Ellis, and he joined us by phone to share why he says this is the best book he’s written in decades, and what’s next in his already-legendary career.
Note: this segment is sponsored by Little, Brown and Company.
