This caregiver’s guide is so much more than a self-care tool. Cording weaves in personal anecdotes of her own caregiver journey, star-studded interviews, and yes, even music playlists. This framework makes it an interesting read that’s also chock-full of tips to help you take care of yourself so you can show up better for those you’re tending to.

The Farewell Tour is so much MORE than a book— it's a guidepost for anyone, anywhere who is (or will become) a caregiver. It's truly THE book that I so desperately wanted to read (and searched for to no avail!) when my dad was sick, and I laughed, cried, and yelped affirmations aloud as I devoured it start-to-finish in an afternoon. Jess is as masterful at writing and storytelling as she is at applying science-based evidence to her patients' real lives as a health practitioner. Yes, this book is filled with compassion, love, humor, resilience, and grief; but it's also an exceptionally practical guide that provides tangible, actionable strategies that can help make life less difficult so that you can make the most of the time you have with the people you love.
