Author Rundy Purdy will visit CLAV-Harrison at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10 to discuss his new memoir, “The Sea is Wide: A Memoir of Caregiving,” which is based upon the years of his personal caregiving experience.Sign up at 724-226-3491.
Rundy shares his story of love with compassion and gentleness. The goal is to help others through their caregiving journey, and educate the community on how they might also support the caregivers they know.
When Rundy was twenty-four he moved to care for his ailing grandparents, lived with them, and spent eight years providing them with full time personal care. He cared for his grandfather for three years until his passing from Alzhiemer’s, and then tended his grandmother for an additional five years. The Sea is Wide is the touching story of those three years making the final journey of Alzheimer’s. Now equipped with the extensive experience gained from eight years of intensive caregiving, Rundy has a passion to help those who are facing the caregiving struggle. His goal is to be a “caregiving coach”—someone to inspire and encourage others to overcome obstacles and struggles to become all the caregiver they can be.
