5299d-HARL-CaregiversCompanion-Twitter-Profile-PicMany individuals deserve to be acknowledged for the support they have given me in life and in the preparation of this book. A special thanks goes to California state legislators, the California Department of Aging, Alzheimer’s Services of the East Bay in California and the countless individuals who shared with me their personal experiences as a caregiver and the successes and challenges of caregiving. The advice, admonitions and anecdotes provided by the unsung caregivers around the globe are the basis of my work.

I must also acknowledge a former caregiver of three loved ones, Mrs. Thell Dodd, of Los Angeles, California. She has mentored and encouraged me over the past twenty- three years. And I would like to express my gratitude to Reverend Dr. Mary Newbern-Williams, my spiritual sister, whom I have known for nearly twenty-six years; Nathan Hare, Ph.D.; Dr. Oscar Jackson, who helped me to understand and walk through my healing process; Madame Chair Mariko Yamada and Robert McLaughlin of the California State Assembly’s Committee on Aging and Long-Term Care, who are helping in the mission to improve the laws in the United States that protect the rights of the aging; and Carolyn Rosenblatt, Patricia Tyson, William Davis and Melissa Harris, all of whom shared their personal stories or were interviewed for the purposes of this book.2015-08-03_1025

DH2015-08-01_0036“I know why the caged bird sings” – How Dr. Hare SAVED my life

The conversation….
Dr. Nathan Hare: Thanks, Carolyn. I can say without exaggeration that you got what it takes. Anybody could see you had a mission and a story to tell, but you seem to tell it a little at a time, a book at a time. It was eerie for me to know you and yo ur calling and encourage it and turn around and have Alzheimer’s turn on Julia. I also can say that you were the main person I depended on – there were others who played for for direction and help with the care and treatment of Julia and the diabolic condition that completely blindsided our lives.
