Behind the Old Face: Aging in America and the Coming Elder Boom has been released!

I am very happy to announce my book, "Behind the Old Face: Aging in America and the Coming Elder Boom", is now available! 

This book comes from my 30+ years experience spending time with seniors, listening, chatting, caring, laughing, crying, helping, observing, and advocating.  I have been amazed, empathetic, sympathetic, joyful, filled with deep laughter, love, sadness, anger, grief, respect, sadness, compassion, understanding, disbelief, happiness, and a host of other emotions throughout the decades I have spent time with aging adults, family caregivers, and healthcare professionals.  I have witnessed the best in care, the worst in "care"and everything in between.

I believe God put "Behind the Old Face" on my heart several years ago, which I have written about in more detail in the book.  I am extremely grateful for the blessings, people and opportunities that have enabled the book to be written and published.  It has been a difficult, yet wonderful journey to get to the place I am now, sitting here announcing the release of the book.  Never having wrote a book like this before, I now understand what it takes to write and publish a book, and couldn't be happier with my publisher, Jared Rosen at Dreamsculpt!

There have been too many people who have contributed to my life and this book to name them here.  I have been humbled by the immense encouragement, support and contributions so many have made to me along this journey and throughout my life and career. I feel my heart is overflowing with gratitude as person after person comes to mind.

I am excited to share my heart and work with you and hope you will read the book and share it with your family, friends, co-workers, groups you are involved with and on social media.  You can read a bit from the book and/or purchase it here.
