Already Toast, by Kate Washington

Staff Pick
Part memoir, part call to action, Washington’s Already Toast is a perfect way both to understand and raise awareness of the care economy.  As a full-time home health aide to her cancer-stricken husband, Washington experienced first-hand how all-consuming it is to manage the work of keeping someone alive. She also discovered that she's just one of millions--part of an invisible army of family caregivers in America--whose unpaid labor keeps our troubled healthcare system afloat. Read this book for insight into the vital role that unpaid caregivers play in our society, and why an investment in this infrastructure matters.
