About the Book

“Nancy Weckwerth has written a powerful book that guides the reader through the practical issues that arise when we face life’s sudden changes. At the same time, she supplies a deeply inspirational and authentically emotional look at living with celebration amidst the transient nature of existence. The reader is left with a clear feeling that, with love and willingness, everything and anything can be integrated into a well-lived, well-loved life.”

—William Martin, author of The Caregiver’s Tao Te Ching, and The Parent’s Tao Te Ching.

“Don’t Stop the Music is a narrative of John’s acceptance of his disability and Nancy’s transformation to a caregiver. Nancy shares their journey through every triumph and challenge with honesty and openness. Her insights disclose the light, the lessons, and the laments that guided them across uncharted territory from surviving to thriving.”

—Martha Paterson OTR/L, CHT Artistic Advantage ~ Performing Arts Medicine

Author Nancy Weckwerth has created a “survive and thrive” manual for Caregivers. Based upon over twenty-five years of caregiving for her friend and partner, John D. Swan, the book describes how to find the joy in caregiving. The wisdom within is meaningful for any caregiving situation
