About the Author

Harriet Hodgson has cared for three generations of family members—her mother who developed dementia in her 80s and her twin grand-children who were teenagers when they lost both of their parents in accidents in 2007. Then, in 2013 Hodgson’s husband’s aorta dissected and he had three emergency operations. Surgeons managed to save his life, but he suffered a spinal stroke during the last operation, and his legs are paralyzed. Hodgson started keeping a journal many years ago and over the years has adjusted her journals to the style she now offers in this book. Hodgson is the author of 35 books and thousands of print/Internet articles. Hodgson has appeared on more than 185 radio/blog talk radio shows and dozens of television stations, including CNN. A popular speaker, she has given presentations at public health, Alzheimer’s, and bereavement conferences. Her work is cited on Who’s Who of American Women, World Who’s Who of Women, Contemporary Authors, and other directories. Hodgson lives in Rochester, Minnesota with her husband John.
